With almost three decades of experience that includes multiple PWBA titles and collegiate championships, former Team USA Coach, Michelle Mullen shares the secrets that have made her one of the world’s most highly sought-after instructors for bowlers of all ages and skill levels.

Specific instruction, photos, and illustrations for left-handed bowlers are featured for every shot. You’ll find tactical tips for picking up the game’s most common spares (in both a traditional and advanced spare-shooting system), advice for keeping emotions and nerves focus in check, and basic and advanced lane-play strategies that will make a significant impact on the score sheet.
