Two-Handed Bowling Technique with Jason Belmonte and Oska Palermaa — 6 Comments

  1. Hi. I’m a senior in high school and a two handed bowler. I had tried for months to curve a ball with one hand, but I never could get enough hook. Then, I saw a video of Belmonte’s two handed bowling, and I decided to give it a try. I’ve increased my score ever since. It’s important to note that, on heavier oil, you may have to slow down on your throw to get it in the pocket. I see other two handers hurl the ball as fast as possible. Then, they can never figure out what they’re doing wrong. I’ve been bowling this way on an average of about five games per week for four months straight now, and I feel like I can control the ball a lot better. I would like to bowl more, but it all comes down to money.

  2. I”m getting back into bowling. i’m 72(240) 6ft1 & prime was 1994 299 700 Series 200 avg league. Yesterday open bowling this big young man was bowling two handed and pins were flying like a buzz saw. I had a 200+ game out of five. My speed 15mph per machine. I’ve never seen pins being thrown all over the place. He had one 235 game. I have got to try the two handed delivery. I will always use my one handed hammer for spares. I don’t use count boards spares. I line up with pin as target bowl over arrow & follow through to pin. 10 pin I move up past return alley on left gets the machine out of picture & cut steps down to 2-3 mostly just

    • Hi Maverick,
      My best advice is be careful, and try a lighter ball at first, even a kids house ball till you get the feel of it. I tried it, and it is fun, but I have back issues and it did make my back a little sore. That is the problem for me. It puts more strain on the back. Then, that little skip/jump step before you release the ball takes some practice, but makes it much easier!. Good luck and thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

  3. I became fan of two handed style since the emergence of Simonsen and Svensons. Belmonte and Palermaa and other two handed bowlers are now my favorates. Now I started to learn the two handed style using my one handed ball layout. I guess I have plaved around 30 to 40 games now. I’ve noticed that if I Put more power on my ball, I ended up on pin ten or gutter(im left handed). Putting less pwer, I can hit the pocket. Ive tried the house ball and its gives more accurate shot to the poket whether less or bigh speed. Looks like I have to used less aggressive ball as Svensons using urethane.

    • Hi Alejandro,
      Two handed bowlers are definitely for real. Svensson joined the PBA in 2014 and has 6 PBA titles! Simonsen joined in 2013 and was the youngest ever PBA champ in 2016! I think that says a lot for two handed bowling.Not many one-handed bowlers have that kind of success in such short periods of time. You may want to experiment with not using the thumb for strikes, but then use the thumb for spares? I don’t bowl two-handed, so I am just going by what other two-handers do! Good luck! And thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, it is appreciated!
