Internet Links to Improve All Aspects of Your Bowling Game

Chris  Barnes Demonstrates the Four Step Approach in a video

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.
