Bowling coaches Rod Ross and Kim Terrell-Kearney discuss a house shot and how the condition of the bowling lane changes over the course of several games. They also assess the styles of three different bowlers and teach you how each player should approach the condition as it changes. By taking into account the amount of oil that builds up in certain parts of the lane over time, you can better adjust for a more consistent ball reaction.
