Fundamentals of the Modern Release

Often when attempting to develop the modern release a bowler only sees the effects; not the causes.


  1. Head over the ball throughout the approach and release (first slide of T.J)
  2. Hand on the inside of the ball at the top of the swing (second slide of T.J).
  3. Maintain the wrist cock entering release (second slide of T.J).
  4. Un-cocking the wrist during the release (various professional releases).
  5. Nike Swoosh!
