Better Bowling...Right Here, Right Now
Welcome to Better Bowling.
It is my sincere desire to help you improve your game. Whether you're just starting to learn the sport, or you're a seasoned veteran who wants to move up to that next level, you've come to the right place.
As you go from page to page, please feel free to jot down any questions, comments, suggestions or complaints and send 'em my way. I want to hear what you have to say.
This monstrosity is the 4-6-7-9-10, better known as the Greek Church. It is considered to be the second-most difficult spare to convert, just slightly behind the 7-10. With that in mind, BIG congratulations go out to Jay VerLinden, who did just that on Saturday, November 9th: he converted it.
This video isn't Jay's, because I didn't have my camera on at the time. However, this is EXACTLY how he did it. (Be patient. The conversion happens about 12 seconds in.)
This is cool. I write occasional articles for Bowling This Month, an online magazine. So imagine my surprise (and big grin) when this popped-up on the BowlingThisMonth.com home page. Thanks, Jim.
Tom C says...
“With the pointers you gave me, I was able to bowl my first 600 series in league. The new wrist position during my approach and release has really done wonders for my rev rate."
Tom, I appreciate the kind words. The fact is, though, all I did was make a few suggestions...you're the guy who rolled the ball. Good going.
Jeane DeK says...
“After my first lesson with you, I bowled 168, 200, 245! 245 is now my new high game. Your tweaks to my form have vastly increased the number of strikes I am able to bowl.”
Thanks, Jeane. I helped, but you did all the work. VERY nice bowling.

Jeane says "I bowled my high game and series today: a 279 and a 636."
Congratulations again, Jeane. Don't stop now!
