The finish position is generally influenced by the footwork, timing, and swing that come before it. However, a bowler can still improve their finish position by isolating a few elements of the movement, which can then influence positions earlier in the approach. Release drills at the foul line or one-step slide drills are best for this kind of work.
Improving Your Finish Position
Several elements of the finish position can be improved with drills, such as foul line release drills and one-step drills. These include:
- The follow through: Reach long and low, instead of up.
- Center of gravity: Your center of gravity should be directly above your slide foot, with the weight evenly placed over the mid-foot.
- Posture: Focus on keeping your posture upright enough so that your head is above your slide foot throughout the release.
