TIPS FOR NOOBS LOLZ

Bowling is one of America's favorite past times, and why shouldn't it be. It is one of many sports that allows any person of any age to not only enjoy the game but to also excel in it. Obviously, the best way to maximize your potential in this game is to have as much information,( as well as bowling tips lol) available for your use, so that you can become a better bowler too! Hey you might even become a professional or just an local legend in your neighborhood!

If you are a beginner you are probably looking for bowling tips that will help you knock down strike after strike. I am sorry to tell you this but like everything in life you must begin with basics. Before the shoes come on, and the bowling ball is placed into your hands, and even before you step into the alley you must devolp a "great bowling mentality". Now the first question you might ask is what is a "great bowling mentality"? Well the simple answer is: A great bowling mentality is a confident as well as realistic outlook of your bowling game. Most pro's perform some type of ritual before they even begin to warm up. I personally find it easy to get into the zone by keeping my mind focused on the "feeling of bowling" and not bowling itself. By the feel of bowling I mean enjoying it, learn to enjoy the sensation of just being their, being in the room, being around other bowlers! Once you have a "great bowling mentality", you can now move unto the physical poriton of bowling.

One of the greatest "bowling tips" out there is finding the right size ball with the correct finger fitting holes. Most men tend to occur shoulder injuries by trying to be too macho and picking a sixteen pound ball. Safety is very important when bowling! A key to finding the right ball is too test out several types of house balls ( don't ever feel ashamed to try out many different ones). The best ball to bowl with is a ball that you have the moderate control over (not too light because this will effect the impact upon the pins, not too heavy this can cause injury as well as reduces the speed of the ball). Once you have found a great bowling ball it is time to start bowling!

Another great "bowling tip" is correct stance or having a proper "address". Your address is your starting position this (along with a great bowling mentality) can make or break a bowler. You should have a defined way to bowl ( don't worry about doing it correctly the first few times, just find a position that is most comfortable for you), now onto the "four step". Before you bowl you should go to the foul line ( the line where the lane becomes slicker and you will foul out if you cross it) turn around and take four normal steps away from it. Then take a half a step to allow for a slight slide. If you are a right handed bowler your left foot should lead, it should make it more comfortable for the approach. Your first step should place the ball right in front of your face almost like your kissing it lol. The next step ( while moving foward) is to drop the ball down to your waist and bring it back as far as you can almost like a sling shot. The third step is to let your arm swing downard ( you should be pretty close to the foul line by now). Finally release the ball and allow your hand to swing up to your brow almost like your are saluating. Their will be a slight slide, and the more you bowl the more comfortable you will become with it.

Remember this is a new skill so it takes time and effort to develop. Don't Give Up! Remember its a game, and as such it is meant to be enjoyed and not to be a worrisome task. Just remember these three things: A great bowling mentality, the right ball and continue to practice your correct form and you will be bowling like the pros in no time!
