  1. Thanks for another good tip! I was thinking that I could do that drill in the back yard whenever it warms up again! πŸ™‚

    1. Absolutely! I work with 2-handers and have them do foul line drills just like these. Balance is a must at the release regardless how many fingers you have in the ball, or how many hands you use to deliver it.

    1. Met Shan (along with Rhino Page and a couple other national/international pros) at a Megbucks tournament in Orlando about a decade ago, the camera doesn’t do her jacked physique justice. She is even more jacked in person. Shan has easily the best physique among every woman bowler out there.

      Didn’t say this to her when I met her cuz I wanted to be as polite as possible, but Shan could easily be a fitness model. Even now. At 41. Backstage Bowling should let Shan do a video about her fitness/workout routine, it would be awesome.

  2. I’ve been experimenting with the “peel away” release where you hold the ball against your chest and “peel” it off of you as you start your approach. Sean Rash does this kind of release and decided to copy it one day. Felt pretty good.

    It’s been preventing me from pushing late and above the bar. WAY less pressure on my bicep too (although more pressure on my wrist). I wonder if that’s better than the traditional push away? Or is it just a matter of preference? Would like someone’s opinion on this.

    Either way, this drill is awesome and this channel is fantastic. I need to start taking the content of this channel way more serious since I plan to go to Midnight Bowlers Society this year and start actually cashing in the smattering of PBA regional tournaments I’ve been going to.

    1. In my opinion, this is personal preference, but also what matches up to the cadence of your footwork (the higher the pushaway, the higher the backswing and slower the cadence of the footwork and vice-versa). If it is repeatable and works for your individual timing, then it is not wrong.
