Agree with above that getting your own ball might help, it's just hard to find the right hole drill pattern when shopping for used balls. Not sure where you're from dude but maybe try craigslist, and there's also sports shops that sell used stuff. Otherwise you'll be buying a new ball for upwards of a hundred clams to find out you might need a lighter or heavier ball, which is what I did. I now have a hand me down ball that works pretty well for me. Least well enou that I can't blame the ball for my shittiness on the lanes!

That's interesting, man. That's fucking interesting.

Thanks. I'll try to take all of the above into consideration.
Trouble was, the lanes were all really busy, it was Friday night, so the lightest available ball with large enough finger holes was a 10. That's just a bit too heavy for me, I think.

Is that some kind of Eastern thing? Interesting flashback, Nolan Hofstadter dude.

"Oh, man. My thinking about this case has become very uptight."
Dudes! Fellow Brothers Shamus! The two previous posts, A Midrash of the Gospel of John and The Big Lebowski, the Large Hadron Collider of the Dharma, reference two embedded stories that swirl around each other like yin and yang. Maybe man, that's just the Half & Half of it. Well, Donnie Christ and Bunny Buddha! What follows? The Dude was threatened with the loss his Johnson, the means by which he would have his son. The Stranger looks forward to a Little Lebowski. A son is on the way. His John's-son came through. The Dude is John, the Disciple whom Jesus loved (even his ashes).
Leb is the Hebrew word for "heart", -owski the Polish suffix "place of." So, maybe "the place of the big heart?" That's just where TBL is working itself into, my big fuckin' heart!
Dudes, just how many yin yang symbols (tight & loose) actually appear in The Big Lebowski? Check out location 43:32 for a bodacious yin yang.

So I took this chick bowling, I hadn't been bowling in many years. She totally handed me my ass on a plate and that's cool, that's cool.
Get your own ball. You are unlikely to ever find a house ball that fits your hand perfectly. I started bowling again recently after a two decade hiatus and after 3 games with a house ball my fingers were swollen and hurting. I am a big guy (6'2" x 300lbs big) so I use a 16lb ball. I also have massive hands and feet (you know what they say about guys with big hands and feet right.........big gloves and big shoes), so it a typical house 16lb finger and thumb holes are too small and too close together and house size 13s might as well be size 11.
A better question is "How in the hell do you maintain your Dude when bowling between two birthday parties for 9 year olds?" I was sandwiched between lawn apes both days I went this weekend. If I could I would just do a J in the parking lot, but that just isn't an option given my choice of employment. Hey we all gotta find ways to put vodka in the freezer. Anyway I made it through 6 games without snatching up a nine year old and rolling them down the lane, so I guess I did OK, but it wasn't as relaxing as it should have been.

Sounds like someone needs to cut the little shit's dick off, man.

Start jerking off manually, helps build forearm strength dude. Not only will your bowling game likely improve, you'll get some enjoyment out of it.

Take 2 Advil Before you go bowling.
Your ball was too heavy and you were not throwing it correctly.
Hold you arm straight out in front of you....palm up. Place a bowling ball in you palm. If you cannot hold you arm straight out the ball is too heavy. I bowl with 12 pound blowing balls....just bought a 13 pound ball and it's a little too heavy....I will go back to 12 pound the next time I buy a new ball.
How to throw the ball without injuring yourself...or others around you!
Your index finger should be pointed straight down, rotate your thumb to point at either 11 o'clock, 12 o'clock (for a straight ball) or 1 o'clock. Always keep the inside of you elbow facing the pins....Do Not Twist your arm or your wrist. Follow straight through. And Slow the Fuck down! Walk...do not run! Place the tip of you left foot on the second dot from the right and aim to throw the ball over the second arrow....if you miss the pocket to the right move you starting point 3 boards right....if you miss left....move left, but aim for the second arrow.
That is bowling for beginners. Once you get the hang of that there tons of other stuff to learn.
