George Freeman's Expert Bowling Tips

-Carry Corner Pins
5/9/1999 - By George Freeman
     When you are having trouble carrying the dreaded corners--don't lose your cool. If you get agitated, it will increase your chances of making even more errant shots. Or worse, you'll start missing those spares. Each spare you miss during a game will cost you at least 11 pins per frame. Keep focused, stay calm. The mental aspect covers more than 90% of the sport.

     When you leave a soft 10 (when the 6 pin lays in the channel), you aren't getting enough entry angle, so move back on the approach about 2 inches, allowing the ball more time to react more in the backend.

     When the 6 pin wraps around the 10, you are getting too much angle, so either move up on the approach or move a half a board left.

     If you're left handed like me, just reverse the suggestions.
