Bowling and perspective on life

The bowling lane is straight and almost flat, but it really isn’t. You will have to face many different types of oils on the floor. Thin, thick, dry or wet oil will make you miss your goal or Gutter. That is not to say the bowling lane is dented or bumpy that you cannot see or be deceived visually.

If you look at Pin which is far from the lane (More than 18 meters) to aim your attack, most of you will miss, instead use the arrows on the lane that are just over 1 meter away from you. It’s the best aim for any bowling player of any skill level. Yet, few people know that.

Dropping 10 pins (Strike) is not only dependent on your strength or speed, but largely from the moment you start and go. The right pace and time to hit the ball will help you get 90% Strike.

The bowling lane will change continuously, rolling the ball many times in the lane as well as the weather and humidity will change the oil layer on the lane very quickly and cause your ball to be deviated. You need to feel this quickly and make a suitable change in your fighting style so that you can win instead of failing by just trying in vain.

Strike after every kick is something every bowler dreams of, but we can’t always be as successful. However, you can still Spare at the 2nd hit. So do not obsess over Strike but forget Spare the remaining batteries on the floor. The winner of a bowling game is the person with the highest score after up to 12 turns (12 frames). So, you should be patient and believe in yourself. Strike will come when you finish each spare shot perfectly.

Respect the batter in the next lane and wait for them to finish hitting the ball. If you are on the ball and the bowler in the next lane also goes up, you will lose focus on your pitch and lose your strike chance. It’s the minimum courtesy on the bowling floor.
