Analysis of the Modern 10-Pin Bowling Swing and Release 2 by Dean Champ 4.5

This video was made using slow motion footage to analyse the modern 10-Pin Bowling swing and release. Areas of analysis are the starting position, crossover steps, the pivot step, balance at the line, the timing spot, dropping the ball inside, and generating power - which shows how the pro bowlers create high rev rates.

Bowlers featured include Wes Malott, Mike Fagan, Pete Weber, Bill O'Neill, Tommy Jones, Dom Barrett, Kelly Kulick, Jason Belmonte, Sean Rash, EJ Tackett, Missy Parkin, Osku Palermaa, Chris Barnes, Amleto Monacelli, Mika Koivuniemi, Diandra Asbaty, Chris Loschetter, Dan MacLelland, Diana Zavjalova, Cho Young-Seon and more...

Thanks to coaches Patrick Birtig, Jim Merrell, Mark Baker and Brian Voss and also a big thanks to Jani (jantukan channel) and others for uploading great HD footage.

💬 Comments on the video

And to think, I used to get made fun of when I was a kid about my 'bent elbow - snap release' style back in the late 80's, early 90's. I was just ahead of the times.

I don't know how I haven't seen this video until now. It's one of the best bowling videos I've ever seen and a magnificent analysis of the modern bowling style. And the musical accompaniment is absolutely perfect! Thank you, Dean, for this extraordinary production and contribution to bowling instruction!

I'm"old school" as well as an "old guy" and I really like Kelly Kulicks game.It seems the most natural and unforced and she still gets a ton of power.If I could roll like her I'd be totally satisfied.But I've always wished I could roll like Amleto.I love that follow through.And for new guys.E.J.Tackett really gets through the ball.Lots of revs for such a little guy.

No doubt, well-done Mr. Champ! I re-visit this video when I feel like I am drifting from key behaviors that shape better bowlers. You created a great reference that I wish I had in 1984 when this journey began for me at Highland Lanes in Austin, TX.
