Trust your bowling skills. When you are in competition, it is vital to trust your game and your decisions when faced with making adjustments as your ball reaction changes.
To thine ownself be true. Trust your skills and in the decisions you must make quickly when bowling in competitive events such as leagues and tournaments.
So often you, as an advanced and skilled player, rely on a couple of physical game keys to your game when facing stiff competition.
When things begin to go awry, however, you must trust your feedback from these physical game skills and determine if something else needs a change such as your bowling ball equipment.
Since you need not be at a 100% shot making output to win, allow yourself some freedom of not being in “perfect stroke” to perform well.
Rely on all of your skills instead of only the core skills which have gotten you to the level of performance you presently enjoy.
The level of knowledge you have acquired about the game and about your skills is the key factor in developing trust when you bowl in competition.
Since it is human nature to want to find a solution to why parts of your game breakdown, it can sometimes become overwhelming to identify every element of your game to address first when you need to make adjustments during competitive sessions.
No bowler has the capability to master each and every facet of the game at one time so learn to trust your existing skills and play the game in front of you by paying attention to the lane conditions and your ball reaction.
Then use the tools you have, including your equipment, to help overcome an ineffective ball reaction.
Stick to what you know and do best and play the game in front of you out on the lanes.
Knowing your game means knowing the range of adjustments you can make to tune your physical motion or to make lane adjustments during the heat of battle.
Trusting your ball reaction reads is essential in making good decisions for playing the lanes.
Successful players typically rely on the key anchors to their games, the core strengths of their games and then trust their decisions in making adjustments accordingly.
Trust your game, read the lanes, react to what you see, make crisp and certain decisions about any adjustments you feel are needed and give yourself the best chance to succeed.
Trust your bowling skills and trust your inner voice when faced with making decisions when it counts most. It is widely acknowledged by top tier bowlers that the mental game is the most important during competition
. It is a combination of effective use of your mental and physical game skills which produce the best results. Prepare your physical game in practice and rely on trusting what you see out on the lanes during competition. Once you learn to merge the strengths of your physical game with good concentration in making good shots and playing the lanes, your level of trust skyrockets as will your scores. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
