By now, league season is gearing up and you are either ahead or behind what you thought you’d average for this season. That leads to the burning question, are you practicing enough – or at all?
When you practice do you roll three games and see if your total improved or do you have a practice routine?
Every bowler goes through a time when they see improvement, and when that happens, you probably stray away from trying something new so as not to disrupt your success.
When consistency and carry become an issue, we find ourselves practicing more. But every glitch in your game has a cause and effect, and sometimes bowlers misdiagnose the cause because they think it is the reason for the effect.
Check out these videos below where our coaches will demonstrate drills every bowler should try while providing insight on accessories you may have heard about or even seen in use, but never tried.
