Common Bowling Blunders
These common bowling blunders are made by players every day. Not only beginning bowlers, but the more experienced ones make mistakes like these. Some painful, some frustrating, and some funny bowling blunders happen to every bowler at some point.
- Choosing the wrong bowling ball weight commonly occurs. If you choose a ball that is too heavy for you, your ball rolls short or lacks power enough to knock down the pins. Too light for you and your strength sends a feather weight bowling ball bouncing down the lane, pretty much out of control.
- Choosing the wrong size of finger holes causes discomfort and possible injury. If the holes are too tight, your fingers will stick when you want to release the ball. This often causes injury. If the bowling ball holes are too loose for your fingers, you might drop the bowling ball too soon, or even drop the ball on your toes. Of all the bowling blunders, that one wins as the worst!
- Trying too hard takes the cake in the list of most common bowling blunders. If you try to power the bowling ball down the lane, a backfire happens. The pins refuse to go down. Instead, deliver it smooth as silk, and become one with the ball in fluid motion. Easy smoothness in delivery gets you great results.
