  1. Gave it a thumbs 👍 before the video is up, why?…Because I trust Shannon to bring the Pro Bowlers Tip, that will make a difference in anyone’s game. Stay safe, blessed, and go have a great time bowling your very best. Enjoy the rest of your day to All.🎳✌

    1. InsideBowling Every video! I’m trying to make my channel better and watching your channel def helps me with that and my bowling game!

  2. Great demonstration! I’d love to see a slow motion view from the release to the landing to illustrate how the ball stays parallel to the lane.
    Also, for those of us who are older, knee bend like Shannon’s first shot isn’t always possible. Any tips for those with knee difficulties?

    1. Thanks for the kind comments Mark. To answer your question on tips for knee difficulties – many times by using your upper body to lean a bit more forward (vertical/torso tilt), a player can get the ball a bit more parallel into the lane. Thanks for watching Mark.

    1. Ha ha. We have this set up with a lapel mic and she’s our bowler not the coach in this video. We can see where you might think it’s a bit awkward. Thanks for watching. Audio comes first sometimes!

  3. Lofting the ball is only a last resort. When Shannon went brooklyn, she rolled over 10 board. But when she lofted it, it rolled over 14-15 board. She changed her rolled significantly lofting it. Lofting the ball is way overrated. You have to keep the same roll as well as hit the same area to truly say lofting is the answer. She has a release that is almost always on the side of the ball. For her to show the lofting, she needed to be up the back of the ball.

  4. Mr. Shady is correct, lofting is a very important part of bowling. Due to my level of rotation, on a typical league condition I will go over the 7 board at the arrows. As the lane dries out I adjust by increasing my speed and lofting. When that isn’t enough I will move left and/or change balls. One of the major benefits of lofting is you have to throw the ball very slightly upward to obtain loft, this causes your hand to put slightly more rotation on the ball. So the loft no only delays the hook so the ball doesn’t hit high, it also causes it to come in stronger increasing the probability of striking.

  5. “Years ago everyone did it…”

    Everyone STILL does it in college tournaments. Hell I got bumped down from the Varsity team to the JV team in college because I didn’t know how to loft the gutter cap properly lol

  6. I’m slow I use to throw it past the arrows that’s out there in the lane I got strikes but never consistent

  7. I guess this doesn’t work for everyone but I have 10 grip levels that came with my Brunswick shoes, what I do when I want to throw the ball harder is put a slide that is shorter and stops sooner, and that encourages me to throw it harder, longer slide, better for a slower release, normally I like a slower release, as I tend to pull it back when I throw it too hard and it just goes straight.
