There is a battle in the 10 pin bowling world, which is how to end the domination of left-handed players. The problem involves the oil layer covering two-thirds of the length of each ball.
The incident is being thoroughly researched at the AMF Bowling Center in Nottingham where the English League organizes every year. The center is also the headquarters of Nick Froggatt, Britain’s number one left-handed bowling player.
Why is this sport more convenient for left-handed people? Froggatt said that it was because too many players on the right hand should dry the oil on one side of the fairway. He said there are few left-handed people so the ball rolling lines are not much affected on the left side. Quick drying oil on the right, so it is not surprising that the right hand player is more difficult.
Each taxiway is 10 pin long, 18 m long, but only 12 m is oiled. The goal is to protect the taxiway from abrasion and damage, but the top players know how to turn that oil into an advantage. Oil helps keep the ball rolling in a straight line. However, to the dry part, friction slows the ball down and hits the pin at the corner depending on the pitch.
Oil scanning is often quite complicated with many styles and machines. Mechanic Ron Garton at Nottingham Bowling Center is trying to handle this instability. He said after 15 games, right-handed players often encountered difficulties while left-handed players were normal.
Garton intends to find a way to cleanse the oil disproportionately, that is, to make it easier for hand players from the beginning, before the oil runs out. Paul Le Manquais inspector said there are no rules prohibiting the use of different types of oil scans. But if it does, it will only create more problems.
Whatever the outcome, Nick Froggatt said he always welcomed the right-hand solutions. He wants his victory to come from talent and playing techniques, not based on the disadvantages of others.
