Bowling Effectively

Keep things related to your bowling game as simple as you can. Do not jam too many unnecessary thoughts that complicate your game during competition.

Being an effective bowler means using the keys to your game which have been well rehearsed and rely on them when it matters most.

Avoid derailing your game by trying to think through each step of your approach or think of all the fundamental details of your physical game while to bowl.

Instead, just focus on one important key to your game. A good start, a good finish, and just focus on your sighting target.

If you are going to experiment, do it in practice sessions when your scores do not count. Otherwise, rely on your strongest bowling assets when bowling in competition.

Remain composed, trust in your decisions on the lanes, and strive to keep an even keel emotionally while under the bowling gun.

The keep it simple notion is also useful when it comes to making bowling ball decisions. Many of the top pros in the country today separate their various events into given lane condition patterns and then develop their bowling ball arsenals accordingly.


Since you are likely bowling in the same centers in leagues, find a sensible series of two or perhaps three bowling balls which all fit your delivery style and the lane conditions. Make sure you use a controlled drilling layout on at least one or two of your bowling balls.

You can vary slightly as you add other bowling balls to your arsenal for the given lane conditions, but avoid placing so much emphasis on bowling balls that you actually “psyche yourself out” if you fail to get a good ball reaction.

Bowling effectively is the notion of keeping things as simple as you can while you bowl. Retain an even temperament through the highs and lows of competition.

Focus mostly on making one good shot at a time and keep things simple.
