***** Tip of the Week *****
George is bowling a regional this weekend, but he left us this tip.
Keep your eyes on the target.
Maybe it's anxiousness, maybe we just want to be the first ones to see Whatever the reason, taking your eyes off of your target is one of the most common mistakes bowlers make. Simply put, you cannot hit what you are not looking at. The brain gets its hand-eye coordination from...yep, your eyes. If your eyes aren't watching your target, the brain can't send signals to your hand to help you hit it. When looking at your target, take special care to keep your eyes on it until well after the ball crosses over it. This will ensure you are always looking at what you are trying to hit.
