Using Bowling Practice Wisely



By: bowlingball.com, 1/29/16

If you are trying to raise your average, get into a habit of using bowling practice wisely.

So often during practice games bowlers will simply concern themselves with score as if they were bowling in leagues or tournaments when scoring matters.

If you are practicing alone and want to work on areas of your game with intent to improve, focus on specific keys to your bowling which help you most when you are bowling at your best.

Use common sense to organize the key aspects of your game. Identify the strengths of your game such as your swing, steps, balance, release, or finishing position.

Organize your game into these simple and common categories every bowler uses and then pick the one you feel best to work on during your practice sessions.

As examples, you you feel you were pulling your ball off of your intended line the last time you bowled league, work on the direction of your forward swing and your forward swing motion including a follow through toward your sighting target.

If you feel you were rushing yourself, practice walking and swinging your bowling ball at a smooth and consistent tempo.

Each category can be practiced one at a time until you feel progress, then move on to the next.

If you adapt the system of selecting one important key to improving your game and work on that key during practice and then move on to the next key when you are ready, in a relatively short time you will have worked on the keys to your game which will surely lead to improvement.






This practice technique helps you to use the time and money invested in bowling practice games resourcefully.

Please do not think it a waste of time to develop your own practice plan. Jot down a few category comments after each practice session so you can review your notes before your next practice.

If you wish to improve your game skills, you have to put forth the effort and the work by practicing with an organized plan or system to rehearse the strengths of your game.

There is no trick to improvement. You must do the work.

Using bowling practice wisely can produce good results. Get into the habit of bowling with a purpose during practice.

Establish the mindset to work on known, key areas of your game. A common sense approach to practicing can be very useful in helping you to get your game back on track.
