Thread: Too much leg!

  1. #1

    Default Too much leg!

    Silly question. Any tips for a guy with long legs or actually a guy not proportioned normal. I am right under 6 foot, which I realize isn't tall today. But I have way more leg than upper body. My knee bend at the line has a habit of pulling the rest of me up and back. If I try to stay head over ball i end up more side ways at the line. Any pros like this that I could youtube?

    I'd suggest watching someone like Wes Malott. He's freakishly huge. I'm not the tallest guy (5'9" on a good day), went to a workshop with him and Randy Peterson a few years ago, and Wes is as big as he looks on TV, if not bigger lol. Guy has to be in the ballpark of 6'7". If he can get down at the line, so can you

    Santos, video yourself. Work on what you dont like but take it easy, one area at a time for example. Steps for a few games and then work on your swing plane and then work on release. Thinking about all the stuff at once is impossible, it will fall in place after muscle memory sets in you have to be accurate first to be cosistent..

    Yeah, I have done this before:
    What I feel like: Pete Weber crushing it.
    What I look like: Mr. Bean bowling with a square ball. LoL
    It does help, especially when I am so sure something feels right. Then I watch and think, Wow, way off!
