Why Making Your Spares In Bowling Is More Important Then You Might Think
I wanted to talk today about the importance of spare shooting, and how to implement this into your weekly or daily practice regime. The common belief is that strikes win tournaments, but I’m here to tell you that is rarely the case! We overlook the fact of how important this part of the game is! I am going to give you some examples of how spare shooting actually helps you with various parts of your game such as focus, confidence, accuracy, and trust. Here are a few drills that I have done and continue to do and even implement this into my coaching.
Some Spare Shooting Bowling Drills To Help You Improve Your Game
Shoot For The Head Pin On A Full Rack
Sound crazy? Here is why, this will teach you to focus, to dial in on 1 pin while there is multiple pins around it takes discipline and commitment also to execute the necessary shot at hand. It will also teach you focus on your target in a more concentrated way. This will improve your accuracy, and when you get back in the situation again, you will be more prepared with the confidence to execute.
Keep Track Of Your Spares During Your Tournament Or League Play
This is a great way to build confidence and show improvement by tracking. There are also various ways of doing so. Apps on your phone, or the old fashioned way with a notebook or notepad. This will help you define your areas of struggle and zone in on your weaknesses and in doing so implementing these into your practice will turn these areas into strengths. This will build your trust in your ability and make your spare shooting more natural!
