When it comes to the shape of the pushaway, a lot has changed over time. According to Karen Pullman and Kim Terrell-Kearney, today’s modern pushaway shape is much smoother and more rounded than it used to be. This shape creates less grip pressure and greater accuracy and consistency.

    Do you start the swing down your target line, or do you point it straight up the lane?

      Hi, Maxwell. If the target line isn’t straight up the lane it’s more practical to start the swing down the target line. If the target line is straight up the lane starting it up the lane is more efficient. Only in specific cases with high level players they start the swing off of the intended target line and it typically deals with a specific liability in the bowlers swing or release that the adjustment’s attempting to correct.
      Example: A right handed bowlers natural swing shape is inside out or left to right at release which launches the ball to the right and the player needs straighter angles through the front of the lane (due to lane pattern or transition) pushing the ball slightly right, in the start, can realign the swing straighter up the boards. Swing shape adjustments are not simple to repeat without practice and understanding of a bowler’s versatility. Thanks for continuing with the Bowling Academy.
