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.
Do heavier bowling balls knock down more pins?
The weight of the bowling ball matters when the ball hits the pins. Too heavy and it will just plow through the pins. However, it will take more aim to also hit the 9 pin using this. Still, with a heavier ball, it might turn less after hitting the 6 pin, and then knock both the 9 and 10 pin down.

Why does my bowling ball roll over the thumb?

What causes thumb to stick in bowling ball?
When the thumb hole is too big for your thumb it can cause a bowler to overly grip the thumb hole in the arm swing which can make it hard to release it at exactly the correct time for a smooth exit by the thumb. The last main reason why a thumb sticks in the ball is because it is not at the correct angle for release.
How do you keep your thumb straight in a bowling ball?
Make sure that your thumb is snug enough that with your finger and thumb in the ball you can hold it by your side, with a completely relaxed hand and arm and the ball stays. if that happens, wiggle one of your fingers and if the ball falls off, then you’re good to go, if the ball won’t budge, it’s too tight.
