Many bowlers, including rev-dominant players, can frequently find themselves in a position where they need a bit more speed. When trying to play straighter or use straighter angles, for example, increasing your ball speed can be a big help. Here are a few tips to help you do just that:

  • Use momentum: Shift your weight just as you start your approach, leaning forward and putting the weight on your toes to help increase your foot speed.
  • Move back on the approach: A longer approach can yield longer strides to help generate more speed.
  • Increase the height of your backswing: Generate more swing speed by creating a higher backswing. Get more momentum in the ball start to help the ball rise higher at its peak.
