tips...helping you improve your game
George Freeman's Expert Bowling Tips

-Diversity In Learning
10/01/2000 - By George Freeman
     As I've said many times before, there is no one correct style of play. Since every human being is different, each person has their own unique way of throwing a bowling ball. By the same token, there is no one correct way to teach the game either. In today's game, there are more coaches and instructors than in any time in our history. This can cause much confusion to a beginning bowler who wants to get better, or even a skilled player who wants to perfect his or her skills. The best advice I can give is to not put all of your eggs into one basket. What I mean is, don't get so wrapped up in one way to play the game that you ignore other possibilities of reaching the same goal. What works for some will not work for others, and vice versa.

     If there is an abundance of instructors in your area, seek them out. It is always a good thing to get more than one perspective on the game, especially in today's environment. What used to work 20 years ago may not work today. Locking yourself in to only one perspective limits your options and you will end up cheating yourself in the long run. You may embrace some things one instructor says, other things may not work for you. But you need to give yourself the opportunity to decide for yourself what works and what does not. If you are worrying about upsetting your coach, don't worry. I can't think of one instructor worth his salt that would frown upon you for trying to expand your horizons. After all, that's what this game is all about. No one knows everything (despite the appearances they give ;) )

     Even the tips I give here week to week, while many have written me to tell me how much they enjoy them, will not necessarily work for everyone. I'm only one perspective, so give the tips I give you a try. Some of them will work great for you, others will not. It doesn't mean you're "doing it wrong," it just means that for you, personally, it isn't the best thing for your game. So, keep an open mind, and don't get too down on yourself. Even the best in the world have trouble when they learn new things.
