The Dominant Eye Phenomenon

As bowlers and as coaches, we all know about the “Dominant Eye” theory.

It is commonly thought that a right eye dominant person will miss the mark by as much as 2 boards to the left, and vice-versa. However, your dominant eye “inaccuracy” may not be the same over different parts of the lane. That is to say, when you are standing in the middle and aiming for the second arrow, you might miss by 2 boards. Yet, when you stand two dots right-of-center aiming for the second arrow, you might not need to make any adjustment.

Time To Reveal Who I Am…

My name is Jonathan or ‘Uncle Jon’ as known to many Malaysian youth bowlers. I have been involved in the bowling scene since my College days in London way back in the mid 1960’s. That’s a lot of years for many of you!

Upon my return from England, I continued my passion for bowling by actively taking part in Leagues and Tournaments. This spilled over to becoming a certified WTBA / ABF coach to impart my knowledge on bowling to the younger generation.

To date, I have trained hundreds of youths in Malaysia, and a number of them have gone on to become National and International Champions. I have been involved in the country’s Youth Development Program since its inception in the late 1980’s. My forte is Youth Development. I have also conducted coaching clinics for private individuals, corporations, schools and universities.

My latest contribution to tenpin bowling in the country would be my books on bowling. I have recently published a series of books on bowling, based on my experience, course studies, seminars and research…in a precise and concise step-by-step tutorial with easy-to-follow diagrams. They are currently available in .pdf downloadable version at this website: http://www.abc2bowlingstrikes-spares.com.  Please feel free to check them out.

Till the next post, have a great day.
