Welcome Visitor to My Bowling Links Page,
It is very common for bowlers to
help one another. Part of the enjoyment of bowling is the interaction
between bowlers. I have found that the assistance given to me by Tommy
Delutz, Jr., Tommy Jordan, Lenny Koslov, Ray Ortense, Val Benson and Ansley
Holmes has been most influential in
molding my game. However, perhaps that strongest influence on my
bowling improvements have come from information available on the Internet.
I try to incorporate the Sean Rash wrist position and the hip movement of
Diandra Asbaty into my game. It is said you can learn a lot by just
watching so for the four step bowler, watching Chris Barnes teach the four
step approach should be most helpful.
So in an effort to assist the many people who flatter me by asking me for
some assistance, I am pleased to provide some useful links that have been of
great help to my bowling game. I recommend that every bowler compose a
book of articles so that they can readily refer to important aspects of
bowling. Also, take the time to do your own searching online and
utilize articles found with a search engine and videos on YouTube.
I want to thank anyone and everyone for coming to this page, and I am hopeful that
information provided by these links helps improve your game. Thank you
again for visiting me online.
Now, feel the rhythm and make it happen. Good Bowling.
