Enhance Your Bowling Grip

Duration: 5:48

Coach Bryan O’Keefe and bowling hall of famer Carolyn Dorin-Ballard discuss some pro shop accessories for a bowler’s hands. Hand conditioners, rosin bags and thumb tape all can help a bowler feel more control and establish a better bowling grip. Don’t be afraid to try something new – it may help your game reach a new level.

    My thumb continues to shrink during league play and don’t know how to solve the problem. Gabe begins over 200 and 2nd and 3rd go terrible as ball no longer fits. What can be done.

      Hi Barbara,

      Thank you for your patience while I asked the experts, here is the answer:

      Hello and thanks for the question.

      I suggest moving to interchangeable thumb inserts.

      Get all of your equipment plugged and drilled with interchangeable thumbs.

      Then ask them to make a small, medium and large insert for you to change for your needs.

      This will enable you to get the same grip every time with every ball you have.

      Check out this video from our coaches for more information.


      Thanks for watching!
