STAYING DOWN ON THE APPROACH




Some of the bowling purist believe that a good 4 or 5 step approach is the way to go. Others believe that you should feel comfortable in ANY approach you take. Either way is OK as long as the ball and your feet are arrive at the line at the same time. Your push-away is also critical to your game because it "sets" up your armswing and ball speed.

The next part of the approach that is very important and which most bowlers have trouble with is staying down. When you get to the foul line, stay down with a good knee bend and be stable. This allows you to have more control over the shot. If you jerk-up at the line, you may be moving your head too much and pulling the ball. When you "pull-up", it is impossible to keep your eyes on your target.
