Finding the Bowling Breakpoint

Downloads

Bowling coaches Rod Ross and Kim Terrell-Kearney discuss the Rule of 31, which is used for finding the bowling breakpoint on a lane at any moment during a game. Finding the breakpoint also requires an understanding of the oil pattern and a close inspection of the changing conditions as time goes on throughout a game.

    Interesting video. However, as a bowler, I struggle when lanes begin to break down, particularly when playing on an easier or challenge pattern where the ratio is around 4-5:1. I feel that when i’m out there i overthink things a bit but can the breakpoint that brings strikes vary by around 4 or 5 boards maximum when playing. I feel when playing on more wide open patterns i try to be too specific and accurate when throwing and consistently end up unsuccessful.
