TWO STEP DRILL

I would like to continue my last posting with an additional tip that should improve your scores.

TWO-STEP DRILL

– Accelerated Power Step –

The two-step drill is an integral part of a bowler’s bio-mechanical functions in the process of developing the power step. Besides acquiring good swing timing, the two-step drill also acts as a catalyst to developing an accelerated swing…a knowledge that is so advantageous in today’s modern power play.

HOW TO PRACTISE THE TWO-STEP DRILL

Start by positioning yourself about 4-5 feet from the foul line.

Place your feet in the staggered starting stance, with the take-off foot (right leg for right handed bowler) about 3-4” further back.

Hold ball stationary by the side of the body. Extend balance arm to 8-9 o’clock.

Begin by pushing the ball forward. During the backward downswing, take a small step forward with the take-off leg.

When the ball reaches the apex of the backswing, you should be in the set ‘pro’ posture and your body weight should be centered on your take-off leg.

NOW you are in the power zone. With your take-off leg, push forward strongly to drive into the slide with your sliding leg…as you accelerate the forward swing.

The result will be a higher ball speed with higher rev rates.

Practise this drill until you achieve the desired results.

I would once again stress that your Basic Fundamentals are the building blocks for a solid game. Once you get them right, learning new things become a breeze.

Look out for more bowling tips in the weeks to come. Till then…have a blast on the lanes!
