How to Adjust to Oily and Drier Bowling Lane Conditions
This is a bowling tip to help you learn how to adjust to oilier and drier lane conditions.
|A lot of bowlers have trouble bowling on either oilier or drier lane conditions. Some do well if the lane conditions are oilier and some do better if the lane conditions are drier. This tip was designed to help bowlers that have trouble and learn how to adjust their weakest area.|
This technique is a little different than I have talked about in the past and mainly relates to your arm swing and wrist release.
Adjusting to oilier lane conditions.
When adjusting to oilier lane conditions we would want a slower arm swing speed with more wrist action. This will help the ball to roll up sooner because of our slower ball speed and we will have more roll on the bowling ball because we will be using a more rolling type wrist release.
Adjusting to drier Lane conditions
When adjusting to drier lane conditions we would want a faster arm swing speed with less wrist action. A faster arm swing speed will help get the ball down lane faster and because the bowling ball is already reacting to the lane conditions we will need less hand motion at the release position. So we would use a flatter type release position. Now we were talking about our arm speed and wrist release up to this point. You will want to keep your feet or footwork at a smooth and consistent manner for both oilier and drier lane conditions and at the same speed for both techniques…
Oilier Lane conditions require less arm swing speed and more wrist action. Drier Lane conditions require more arm swing speed and the less wrist action. Keep your foot work equal and consistent and at the same speed with both techniques.
