Pro shop people I talk to say that the finger holes have to be drilled

at angles pitched away from each other and at least one-quarter inch
apart so as to prevent cracking or breaking the bridge.
Here's the deal:
My middle finger holes are pitched toward the index finger, but my
middle finger curves slightly towards my ring finger and as a result I
have developed a callous on the inner side of my middle finger. If I
bowl more than 4 or 5 games my fingers begin to hurt. My release
technique causes me to stay behind the ball and flip it off my
fingertips to generate revs instead of turning my wrist. I prefer a
fingertip span, and I have tried shortening my span, from a little over
5 inches to 4 7/8 inches. My proshop guy wont budge on the pitches, he
wants to shorten my span some more and get me to turn my wrist when I
release. If I shorten it any more the span is not comfortable to me and
I cant get out of it cleanly. I guess I do not have the coordination to
turn my wrist at the release.
So Bob, is/are there any other way(s) to drill finger holes so as to
protect the bridge and accomodate the natural shape of one's hand and
style I want to use?
