How do I stop turning my wrist in bowling?
Place your hand in a position where it would be directly on top of the ball or slightly to the inside (palm facing out more) of the ball. Then just relax your arm and let it fall freely.
Where should your hand be when you release a bowling ball?
Keep your thumb toward the pins and your fingers behind the ball during the release and follow-through with the palm of your hand facing up. This technique has less to do with striking and everything to do with picking up spares.
When should I let my bowling ball go?
Let go of the ball near your ankle and finish with your hand in the handshake position after you release the ball. You know your hand is in the handshake position when your thumb is pointing up and your palm is facing the inside of the lane.

When hooking the bowling ball your fingers should exit the ball before your thumb?
