Bowling Tips From WORLD YOUTH 2-Gold Medalist AARON KONG

    My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting up with two of my former youth bowlers recently. They had been invited as part of the Team that won the 10th World Youth Championship Team Gold Medal in Orlando,USA, to give away prizes and sign autographs for the Under 12 Category of the Sportexcel Malaysian Tenpin Bowling Junior Circuit.

As their former Coach, I was of course thrilled with their progress and success. And they were gracious enough to accept Ivy’s request to share their success story with the bowling community. Here are excerpts of the interview with Aaron Kong.

Ivy: Aaron, congratulations on your 2-Gold Medal haul. (Aaron also won the World Youth Masters Gold Medal)

Aaron: Thank you.

Ivy: Can you tell me what made you choose Tenpin Bowling instead of some other sport?

Aaron: My dad, Roland Kong, was an ex-National Bowler. He was part of the Team to the 1977 SEA GAMES. He would bring me to the Bowling Alley when I was young and I guess that’s how I developed a love for the sport.

Ivy: How old were you when you started bowling?

Aaron: I think I was about 8-9 years old.

Ivy: What was your most memorable moment as a young bowler?

Aaron: When I was selected into the Single A Youth Development Program!

Ivy: I know it was a long time ago, but can you recall any memorable occasion with Jonathan as your Coach?

Aaron: Of course! I remember one Circuit in Johore. I was really fumbling and struggling with my game. Coach saw me and immediately told me what to do. He helped me to qualify for the Finals. I will always remember and appreciate that.

Ivy: What would you say is the most important aspect or stage of bowling that aspiring bowlers should focus on?

Aaron: Their Basic Fundamentals. That is very very important.

Ivy: What additional bowling tips would you give to those who wish to emulate your success?

Aaron: I would tell them to never give up. They have to be confident they can do well, and they must never be afraid to make changes.

Ivy: Thank you so much, Aaron, for willing to share some of your success secrets. Jonathan and I wish you every success in your bowling career. We know you have an outstanding future ahead of you.

Aaron: My pleasure. You are most welcome.

Well folks, those are golden tips from a World Champion. Stay tuned for another revealing moment with Team mate Adrian Ang in next week’s post.

Enjoy your bowling.
