CG Punch on a bowling ball

Definition

Definition 1: The point marked on the cover of the ball, indicating where the most top weight is, to be used in the drilling process

Definition 2: The actual center of gravity close to the center of the ball

In myths, it has been claimed to affect ball reaction enough to be important to consider when laying out a ball
