How to Correct A Bad Hook In Your Bowling Games
There are several items to consider in this case.
First, you should consider your physical game, check your start in order to ensure it is timed up
specifically your timing. If your timing is too early,
it seems that the ball is gone before you can
do anything with it. Consequently, your release feels
weak, and the ball reaction shows it. How
could you correct this? Here are the necessary steps:
make sure that your armswing isn't too fast as
compared to your footwork
get your body to lead the motion into the finish.
You can do several other things to respond to not
getting enough hook. Check your choice of
where you're going to play the lanes. There is more oil
in the middle of the lane and less toward
the outside part of the lane, so you will probably want
to move to an outside line in order to
make the ball hook more.
Sometimes, no matter how much you move to the outside
part of the lane, your ball still doesn't
hook enough. Itís time for you to check your bowling
ball, since the cover may be the major
factor. Perhaps you will need to choose a ball with a
more aggressive cover, core, and layout.
Or you will probably need to clean or resurface your
aggressive ball. Again, go to your pro shop
operator to take care of this.
You should also check how you're getting the ball onto
the lane. In order for the ball to hook a
little more, get it down to the lane earlier. Bring the
target closer to you and make sure your rear
end gets low as you deliver the ball.
If you play on a slicker lane, you should use less ball
speed. How do you slow down your ball?
You can do this by making your overall motion to the
foul line less aggressive. Your ball will
hook much better with less speed.
Another good method is strengthening your wrist and hand
action at the release. Your wrist
should be in a more cupped position and your hand in a
more cocked position. This will make
the ball roll stronger and have better results on oily
conditions. These adjustments for lanes that
aren't hooking enough can make your outing more
