  1. All the past months of tips are all things I have been working on! Glad to see examples of how to improve! Keep these tips coming! Happy Tuesday

    1. As a 2 handed too, I know what you mean. Use your camera to get videos and watch what happened to your routine. My elbow was too separated from my body creating a lot of inconsistency, so I recorded my drills when I was not in front of my coach to get feedback and I improved my game very much. Hope it helps you.

    1. A youtuber e-mailed me a comment with their reply feature disabled the following reply to my comment above: β€œwhen you are trying to be safe, a mask is needed”. My reply to that comment is that as a doctor in practice for over 33 years nothing could be further from the truth. 45 years of Randomized Control Trial studies have unanimously shown that face masks are unhealthy to wear and they do not protect against viral particles in any setting. The medical literature is clear on this. Wearing a face mask is unhealthy especially during activities like bowling. People need to stop watching the actors on TV and read the medical research. If you do not know where to look I will be happy to give you the list of these studies that I give my patients.

  2. Thank you Shannon I really appreciate your talent and bowling support may God
    continue to bless you.

  3. Two questions about the follow through more so than comments. 1) I’ve heard two schools of thought about the follow through : a) reach out with the follow through, not up; and b ) reach up as opposed to out. Which of these is more conducive to the modern game?
    2) You mentioned follow throughs coming more in front of the face. I’ve noticed that a lot of PBA players (but rarely any WPBA players) exhibit a follow through that reaches across their body. Sam Cooley is a prime example, but Wes Mallot tends to do this and even Chris Barnes sometimes comes across his face (before he finishes with the arm arcing back right of his shoulder). How do they manage to project the ball out and to the right when the arm follows through so much to the left and what is it about the modern game that makes such a follow through possible?

  4. I really enjoyed how you forced your follow through to the right. It showed what the result could be. I was waiting for you to try the DZ follow through!
    When I was working on keeping my swing in line, I like to visualize/see my hand go through my target. If it didn’t, I knew my swing was a bit off, usually due to a “loose” elbow.
    Thanks again for a great Tip Tuesday, Shannon!

  5. Elbow…gotta concentrate on my elbow! Thanks for the tip. Question… what do you suggest to do about wrist pain and hand placement? I feel like my wrist is weak and I’m not consistent with my release…

  6. thanks for your videos…what wrist support do you use?…make a video of how to use it…a lot of people like me will apreciate it…at least me …73 y/o trying to learn

  7. Can you please do a video about the double bounce it seems like no matter what I do my ball always bounces when I throw it and it’s making me inconsistent

  8. Once the ball clears your fingertips absolutely nothing you do with any part of your body will affect the ball’s motion.
