There are many things that contribute to the mental game of bowling. First, concentration and confidence are key aspects of the mental game of bowling. Knowledge and equipment account for about 50% of a bowler’s mental game. Your mental game of bowling will improve if you absorb accurate and helpful information about bowling. Many people claim to be experts, but may not be the best source for information. There are also many bowling manuals books and videotapes.

The approach to the mental game of bowling is very important. Many people use a combination of the following techniques. First, a pre-bowling visualization of your roll will improve your mental game of bowling. Next, relaxation/self hypnosis will help improve your mental game of bowling.

The Shot Cycle

 

1) In your pre-shot routine plan on what you intend to do and how you intend to do it.

2) When you initiate your intention into movement bowl wholeheartedly. 

3) Evaluate with mental and emotional reactions. This will help you with shot repetition.
