Remember that article a while back about two-handed bowling becoming popular? Well here's a young dude, Tim Wolchko, who just won the New Jersey high school championship with the two-handed method. He didn't just start recently due to the recent craze, he's been doing it his whole life. As a kid people would ask his bowling father, Bill Wolchko, when Tim was going to be "taught the correct way." Obviously his father didn't feel the need to make his son bowl any particular way. If it's not physically harmful, is it really wrong? We'll have to check with Walter for an official ruling.
I often bowl with a "unique" form as well. I even took a bowling class in college to knock out some required phys ed requirements and our professor was a little amazed I could still throw the rocks. I'd do this weird, inverted twist thing. I'm right-handed and according to the proper form, I should lead with my left foot and have the ball traverse from right-to-left across the lane and into the "sweet spot." I'd basically bowl in a left-handed manner with my right hand. I'm still not sure how it works, it just did. How do you prefer to bowl?
Big thanks to TQ for the article.
