Curve A Bowling Ball
Learning how to curve a bowling bowl is a matter of simple technique. Curving a bowling ball is a great way to bowl. Curving is for more than just show, it can deliver power and precision when used correctly. Curving a bowling ball can also lead to frustration if you do not know how to manage the ball.
- Learning to curve a bowling ball takes skill and proper motion. Your approach can remain the same. The curve of the bowling ball comes with the movement of the hand and the stiffness of the wrist. As you go to release the bowling ball keep your wrist rigid. Your palm should be facing the pin and as you release, turn your palm inward.
- The arm motion should follow through with your elbow up near your ear. This motion should put a slight spin and the ball helping it curve (break) into the pins. You will need to adjust where you stand, perhaps depending on where the ball hits after it breaks. For curves that hit high, step back and for low curves on the pocket, step forward.
- Also, remember the harder you throw the bowling ball the less the curve. Lighter tosses of the bowling ball will create a larger or more dramatic break. This will also need to be adjusted until you reach the happy point in your ball as it curves. One more thing that may help and that is a bowling glove. Look for a glove that has a padded palm. This will give you lift when throwing the bowling ball and assist in the curving of the ball.
