There was a "pattern" invisible in the lane of bowling and it was influencing the score

The bowling form has a big influence on the score, but on the other hand there is a "pattern" that is not visible in the lane of the bowling, and there is a big difference depending on whether you know this pattern or not. YouTube explains the pattern that makes it possible for usual people to beat more bowling pins.

The hidden oil patterns on bowling lanes - YouTube

A man who throws a ball in the air by bowling.

This is you.

On the other hand, men in the form shaking their arms large ......

It is a professional bowlerParker Bourne III.

Even just watching at once, the form is quite different between amateur and professional, and this will greatly contribute to the bowling scores.

However, in fact there are patterns that are not visible in the lane of bowling, not only the form, but also whether it knows this pattern or not will change grades.

Born III who had thrown the ball earlier was a bowler who took 35 titles and won a prize of about 3 million dollars. The more famous the name is attached to the arcade game, the famous person in the bowling world.

Before describing the hidden patterns of the bowling lane, first describes the basic mechanism of the bowling lane.

Lane is composed of 39 sheets of 2.7 cm wide boards called boards, and points and arrows called guides and targets are marked.

The arrow is written in seven locations in the width of the five board, the arrow in the middle have been written in the 20 th board.

When aiming for strikes, between pins 1 and 3 ......

Or between 1 and 2 pins. These two places are called "pockets". I will use the arrows as a landmark to target these places.

About the "hidden pattern" where the explanation of the lane is over. A hidden pattern is a pattern made by oil that is painted on the lane. Originally oil was applied to protect the lane, but there is a difference in the amount of oil depending on the location, if you send the ball to a place with little oil, the slip will be worse. Therefore, by discriminating the oil pattern and throwing the ball, the result will change greatly.

Normally, it will be painted with such an oil machine.

National Association of Provo Bowlers(PBA)Also recognizing the importance of the oil pattern, there is a case that the pattern is visible blue oil is sometimes used.

The state of the actual game is like this.

In the figure below, the color of places with a lot of oil is darker. When throwing a ball, if you aim at a place with a lot of oil, the ball slides without friction, as the tire slides on the ice.

As the ball advances, the amount of oil will decrease. If spin is applied to the ball, as the amount of oil decreases, friction is created and the direction of movement of the ball begins to bend.

When reaching an area without oil, the friction becomes even bigger, so the ball reaches the pin with a large curved line.

Since it is necessary to sharply curve the ball in order to hit the ball in the pocket between the pin and the pin, it is important to distinguish and use the oil pattern.

Looking at the locus of the ball actually thrown by Born III, you can see that the ball going outward is sharply curved before the pin until halfway.

There are multiple oil patterns in PBA such as "Temuki" "Bear" "Cheetah".

Born III likes oil pattern called "cheetah". Born III who is accustomed to bowling with a garter seems to like a cheetah's oil pattern because he likes the way to throw a ball to the end of the lane and make it sharply curved and head the ball toward the center .

Illustrated like this. In the lane of the cheetah, the oil in the outer part is less, so by putting the ball on it, it is possible to make the curve early.

The characteristic of the cheetah is that the position where the oil finishes is relatively forward. Therefore, there is no oil, that is, the place where friction occurs increases.

It is this lane that you can take a long distance until the ball that was running outside the lane returns to the center.

In the raccoon lane, it is necessary to throw the ball to the center of the lane, because it is long until the end of the oil and the amount of oil in the center is large. Long oil pattern means that there is not enough distance from the outside of the lane to the center as the cheetah is because the area without oil is short.

In response to such oil patterns, the professional bowlers will adjust the throwing speed and the type of balls. Moreover, in the bowling match, the oil pattern changes as time passes.

This is because the ball will be stretched out the area painted with oil by being played many times. In the following images, you can see that the right-handed players are many, especially the oil on the right side has been stretched.

Four lines are contained in the part surrounded by a yellow frame, but this is a trace of oil elongation.

"Here and also, there is a trace of oil here", Bourne III pointed to the front of the pin where oil should not be painted originally.

Therefore, depending on the state of the lane, the bowler needs to change its strategy. Also, left-handed people do not receive much influence of oil pattern disturbance, so it can be said that they are getting advantage by that much.

Like basketball, bowling looks like a sport done in a prescribed court ... ...

As with golf, the course changes according to time and place.

So, can non-professional people get the advantage of oil patterns?

It is possible to receive the advantage of oil patterns by knowledge even for students and other general people who do not use custom-made balls like professional, do not receive bowling classes as well. In many bowling lanes, the oil pattern is painted heavily, so that the oil pattern is roughly between 32 feet and 40 feet (9.7 meters to 12 meters), so that the time the ball is centered will be longer.

So, first of all, if you place the ball on the center line, it will go smoothly without friction and will not be curved at an early stage.

Conversely, if you want to hurl earlier, throw the ball on the outside with less oil OK.

So, what you should remember when an ordinary person bowls with play is the "minus 31 law". It is intended to aim the target which is 31 minus the length of the oil pattern.

For example, if the length of the oil pattern is 41 feet, minus 31, that is, aim at the tenth board.

This is the tenth board.

When spinning and aiming at the tenth board, it is said that the ball will draw a curve just like pocketing.
