Understanding Bowling Fundamentals

There are many bowling fundamentals that you need to consider when lining up your shot! USBC Certified Gold Coach Del Warren explains the three point targeting system they use at Kegel Training Center to USBC Hall of Famer Carolyn Dorin-Ballard.

The three points of these bowling fundamentals include: the focal point, the exit point and the target. This bowling fundamentals system is a tool used to help you line up your shot. The points that make up the system are chosen during your pre-shot process. Know what you are going to do before you step onto the approach, get your body into alignment to where you want to be and make the shot.
