Rod Ross and Kim Terrell-Kearney analyze three shots from four separate bowlers, and then provide tips for bowling that will assist you in determining where you should start with your feet and eyes on the lane. They look at players with higher, medium and slower speeds and discuss how they each might vary their approaches, angles and break points based on the speed of their ball.
