The game of bowling is an art form that has frustrated many people over the years. For most people, it is quite difficult to be able to have a bowling release that will allow them to take their game to the next level. The correct way to throw a bowling ball can be very helpful.

The most important thing to remember about the bowling release is that you always want to ball to end up in the pocket. This is the area between the front pin and the two pins directly behind it. When you are able to place the bowling ball into the pocket your chances of bowling a strike increase dramatically. The only proper way to ensure that you’re correctly placing the ball into the pocket is to release the bowling ball with a bowling hook. If you throw a bowling ball straight at the front pin, you may bowl a strike, but the chances of that aren’t nearly as good as if you hook a bowling ball.

The Proper Bowling Release

The bowling ball release that allows you to throw a bowling ball hook is very difficult to perform with the bowling balls that are usually available for use at the bowling alley. If you love to bowl and would really like to improve your game, your best bet is to get a custom made bowling ball for your own personal use. The reason it is important to have a ball that is customized for your own fingers is that the bowling release is all in the fingers, for the most part. The fingertip grip for a ball that is available at the bowling alley will be much different than the grip on a ball that was purchased in private.

A reactive-resin cover stock will allow you to user the fingertip grip, which is preferable to the more conventional grip required for you to use a house ball, or a ball available at a bowling alley to play with. The balls that bowling alleys lend to bowlers are specifically designed to go straight. It is unknown whether this is done intentionally, but it is probably because better bowling balls cost more money. If you love to bowl and would like to improve your bowling release, you should buy a better bowling ball or ask someone else to buy it for you. You have to have a high-quality ball in order to get the hook that you need in order to bowl a strike with some consistency.

If you have purchased a better bowling ball, you will find that the bowling ball hook will come more naturally to you than with a conventional ball. The resin cover on the ball will allow you to throw hooks more naturally, and it won’t feel nearly as uncomfortable as conventional bowling balls do. The correct bowling ball release will allow the ball to wander toward the gutter and then hook back into the pocket. That’s where the term hooking ball comes from. Many inexperienced bowlers watch a hook ball and believe that it will go into the gutter, and then they are amazed when it curves back into the pocket and completes a strike.

The approach is the first step in throwing a bowling ball regardless of the bowling release you choose to practice with. The approach really doesn’t matter as much as long as you’re holding the ball in a comfortable position to allow yourself to swing your arm like a pendulum. The approach is simply your choice on how to gather your momentum as you make 3 or 4 steps toward the foul line. The most important thing to remember about the approach in bowling is that you can’t step past the foul line. If your foot goes past the line, not only will your roll not count, but you won’t get to do it over again. You will lose that frame entirely. Always keep this idea in mind when you make your approach.

The next step is referred to as the gather. Contrary to what many novice bowlers believe, crossing your throwing arm in front of your body will not allow you to hook a ball. The only thing this will do is aim your ball at the gutter, and you’ll find out very quickly that this is an ineffective bowling strategy. As you make your approach toward the foul line, the ideal way to get ready for the release is to bring your arm straight back as high as it can go. You want your arm to imitate a pendulum or a swing. You will lose control of the aim of the ball if you don’t bring your arm straight back and prepare to release it as straight as possible.

Another idea to keep in mind about the gather and the pendulum arm swing for the bowling release is that it is not necessary to swing the arm faster when you’re ready to release the ball. The faster you try to throw the ball, the more likely you are to lose control and lose the aim that you were picturing during your approach. Watch a professional bowler when they make their approach and begin their own arm swing. If you notice how relaxed and at ease they are, you will also notice that they don’t really swing their arms with a lot of speed or force when they bowl. It’s not really about speed; it’s about being able to get the ball to hook back into the pocket. That is the key to throwing strikes on a consistent basis.

Now that you have a good ball, an approach you’re comfortable with and you’ve mastered the art of the gather, it is now time to focus solely on the bowling release. This is where you will learn how to hook a bowling ball. Once your arm has come forward after the pendulum swing discussed earlier, you want to flick your fingers in such a way that the thumb will exit the ball first. This is the reason why you want your own ball, because it is much easier to release a bowling ball when you can place your thumb comfortably inside the thumb hole. Conventional balls don’t allow you to do this. If the thumb is left outside of the hole, it will be much more difficult to control the angle at which you release the ball and the angle at which the hook will take place.

When you release the ball with the flick of the fingers, you should take your thumb out of the thumb hole first. Once your thumb is out, you then use the two fingers left in the finger holes to control where the ball will go once you release it. You don’t want to have too much of a pronounced flick when you do your bowling release, because a dramatic turn in the fingers will send the ball at an angle that will make it impossible to hit the pocket consistently. Many beginning bowlers believe that the release is all in your wrist, but you will injure your wrist badly if you consistently use it to try to put spin on the ball. A 16 pound object will cause damage if you don’t throw it properly, and you won’t become a better bowler by using your wrist anyway.

After the release is complete, it’s important to make sure you’re doing a proper follow-through. The follow-through will let you know if your release was fundamentally sound or not. If you can get someone to take pictures of you while you go bowling, it would be a big help. Your release hand should appear to be shaking an invisible person’s hand when you follow through with it. This aspect of the bowling ball release will assure you that you’re throwing a good bowling hook. If you freeze and remain still in your release, a bowling coach will come over and try to shake your hand in the position you left it in. If your hand can be shaken, you’ve at least conquered the beginning stages of throwing a bowling ball hook.

There are a few things to keep in mind as you bowl more to try to perfect your bowling release. The first thing to remember is that you should take some time off from practice if your wrist or fingers on your bowling arm are too sore. You will be able to be a better bowler if you’re feeling your best, just like in any other sport. Also, once the wrist pain disappears from your bowling sessions, you’ll know that you’re on the right track to be able to hook a bowling ball.

The bowling release is a tricky skill to learn for beginning bowlers, but hours of practice will have you ready for competition before you know it. Your friends that always beat you on the scorecard will be surprised to see your name ahead of theirs on a consistent basis. Bowling hooks will allow you to hit the pocket and knock down all of the pins on a consistent basis.
