All they are making of the game of bowling is a "strike or no-count" proposition. Such bowlers seldom succeed in becoming good at the game. Now, let's take up the matter of how to make strikes. First, because of the pattern in which the ten pins are arranged, all of them can be toppled more often by directing the ball into the 1-3 pocket (the space between the 1-pin and the 3-pin) than into any other place. One might score strikes in almost any other fashion, too, but the 1-3 pocket furnishes by far the greatest chance for success. The ball asics gel lyte v schwarz , on such a hit, -strikes the 1-pin, then the 3-pin, next the 5-pin, and finally the 9-pin, the other pins being accounted for by the action of these pins.
Having determined that the ideal spot at which your ball should contact the pins is the 13 pocket, let us take up one at a time the type of ball to be delivered. There are four main divisions the straight ball, hook, curve and backup.
THE STRAIGHT BALL
Unless you throw a natural hook from the first time you pick up a bowling ball, I suggest the use of a straight ball until control has been mastered. All too many beginners see the experts using an effective hook and try to copy it without first laying a solid ground- work of footwork and timing. The straight ball is delivered with no turn of the wrist or fingers asics gel lyte iii schwarz weiß , the ball being released with the thumb on top and the fingers underneath. As a general rule, it is the easiest to throw, but the straight ball is not a great "strike-getter" like the hook and the curve, because it does not produce a real "mixing" action on the pins, and it is easily deflected.
When you begin with the straight ball, however, you have a more natural delivery and consequently make fewer mistakes. The bowling beginner who immediately starts out throwing a hook must watch not only his stance, footwork and timing, but in addition must co-ordinate perfectly his release of the ball in order to make certain that all other departments of his game are working correctly. Otherwise he may be at a loss to discover just where he is making his mistakes.
As a beginner you can try to throw a straight ball. It is the easiest to throw, but the straight ball is not a great "strike-getter" like the hook and the curve. After this straight ball you have a more natural delivery and consequently make fewer mistakes.
