Get Lucky, Bowl a Strike

Focus: This tip may be simple, but it is important to bowl a strike. Not only do you need to focus on the pins, but also the arrows on the lane. Your obvious goal is to knock all the pins down, but in order to do so you will need a strategy. Focus on the arrows on the lane. If you are right handed aim for the second arrow to the right. If you are left handed aim for the second arrow to the left. Aiming for these arrows will help if you ball doesn’t remain in a straight line.


Choose a lighter ball: To bowl a strike, you want the help of the other pins. When you use a heavier ball the pins tend to fly in the air. When you use a lighter ball they knock down more pins. Skip your arm workout and opt for a lighter ball.


Take your Time: Don’t hurry your shot. Take your time. When you rush you will lose your focus. Remain calm and get yourself ready for your shot.
