Norm Duke is easily one of the biggest names ever to compete in the sport of bowling. Aside from being a PBA Hall of Famer and winner of 34 PBA Tour titles, he’s bowled 58 perfect games in professional competition and pocketed over $2.8 million in prize money.
So when it was announced that he was releasing an instructional bowling DVD, I naturally was curious to find out more!
Learn to Bowl Competitively
Norm Duke’s Learn to Bowl Competitively DVD contains no fewer than 20 high-quality lessons, each featuring sharp graphics, in-depth demonstrations and a step-by-step approach to taking your game to the next level.
This DVD is highly recommended for any and all bowlers looking to improve their fundamentals and increase their scores at the lanes. You’ll learn about timing, swing planes, reading the lanes, carry and pinfall, and much more.
While I wouldn’t recommend this DVD to a complete beginner, who might be overwhelmed by some of the terminology, anyone who has spent decent time bowling should be able to handle these lessons. (And in fact, just reading through all our articles here on BeginnerBowlingTips.com would be enough to get most bowlers up to speed.)
Extremely Current, with Great Production
Also, the DVD was created in 2010 so it’s just about as current as can be. The only other bowling videos on the market are much older, and quite frankly, not as well done. Each lesson here was filmed using a full production crew and cutting-edge equipment to provide the best possible learning experience.
Getting to actually see the bowling lessons in video form makes a big difference, and when you start to consider how expensive private coaching is (especially with a real PBA tour champion) this DVD is a great value.
By clicking this link, you can check out the DVD straight from the distributor. You can read some customer reviews and even take a sneak-peak at three of the lessons!
If you’d rather hear it from Duke himself, here’s what he has to say about his training product:
“Why should you struggle to improve your game when you can take advantage of my 30 years of PBA Tour experience and improve immediately? This is your chance to get on the “fast track” to drastic results that will send your confidence soaring and allow you to take your game to higher levels of competition, and succeed!!” -Norm Duke
