TIPS AND TRICKS TO MAKE YOU A BETTER BOWLER


MIKA KOIVUNIEMI 2014 PBA Viper Champion


DISCOVER YOUR SPECIALTY “To be successful in bowling today, you have to have some unique- ness. I think the thing that’s unique about my game is the way I loft the ball. That sometimes allows me to stay farther right than most play- ers because I take the front part of the lane out of play. I think that’s my specialty. More bowlers should work on finding out what their uniqueness is, and take advantage of it.”


BOWL ON CHALLENGING LANE LATTERNS “The way the lanes are oiled for most leagues today does not re- ally support people who want to become better shot makers. A lot of league bowlers just try to match up, and if they do, they strike a lot; if they don’t, they don’t strike a lot, and they try a different ball or whatever to match up. I think the top players in the world right now are so much farther ahead of the typical league bowler than ever before, because we still can make good shots, but we also know how to match up. People who just grew up on league shots are not good shot makers.”
