Sometimes, just one key tip or new technique can mean the difference between success and failure. That's why we strive to deliver the absolute best bowling instructional material available anywhere.
The modern sport of bowling requires mastery of so much more than just the physical game. Today's top bowlers can only be at their best by having in-depth knowledge in a wide variety of bowling-related topics. Bowling balls, drilling and layouts, the mental game, health and fitness, lane play, ball motion, coverstocks, oil pattern transition, and arsenal selection are all now critical components for bowling success at the highest levels. All of these important topics are covered regularly by Bowling This Month.
Of course, that's not to say that the physical game is no longer important; in fact, it's quite the opposite. With the extremely wide variety of playing conditions encountered by bowlers today, a consistent and versatile physical game is a prerequisite for bowling success! That's why we continue to devote a significant portion of our content on the physical game, including the latest in biomechanical research for bowlers, analyses of the various styles that make up the modern game, and all the standard physical game topics like footwork, the release, timing, balance, and the armswing.
