Bowling coaches Rod Ross and Kim Terrell-Kearney discuss the Rule of 31, which is used for finding the bowling breakpoint on a lane at any moment during a game. Finding the breakpoint also requires an understanding of the oil pattern and a close inspection of the changing conditions as time goes on throughout a game.
