The Elite Youth Tour with Jason Belmonte and Diandra Asbaty had an event at Oshkosh Lanes in Oshkosh. Their website is www.eliteyouthtour.com
Some parents have approached me regarding one of our youth bowlers who was using a two handed approach on spares only and one handed for strikes.
They thought that the bowler was switching hands throughout the competition by switching between the one handed and two handed.
After talking with USBC, we found out that what the bowler was doing is legit.
Below is a copy of that specific rule.
118b/3 A bowler is using the two-handed approach.
The bowler’s dominate hand is the right hand. Can the bowler use the right hand for spares?
YES, since both deliveries are with the same dominate hand, the bowler did not change delivery and, therefore, is not in violation of any USBC rules
To sum it up, the hand that releases the ball has to be the same hand, the bowler cannot switch hands. If anyone needs any more clarification, please let me know.
October 21 is the anniversary of JBST’s first ever tournament. We started with 10 entries and awarded $250 in scholarships. Since then we have had 837 bowlers from 215 different cities representing 9 states, 4417 entries, awarded $152,015 in scholarships, and 217 Junior Gold spots. After 3 events this season, we had 250 entries, awarded $7,835 in scholarships, and 21 Junior Gold spots.
Please note that proof of average is needed at time of checkout for all handicap division bowlers.
I would like to thank the photographer, Christina Warren, for taking time out of her busy schedule to help us. I should be getting more pictures. If anyone is interested in seeing the pictures, please contact me to schedule a time to meet. If anyone is interested in having Christina take pictures again at our events, please let me know. – Chris
