.....how do guys like Tom Baker and Brian Voss keep so much energy in the
ball while throwing it (seemingly) very slow?

By knowing how to put muscle in while taking speed out.

Yes, Tom Baker does spin the ball pretty good, signing with Brunswick
will be a good move for him. Voss is a tweener, he is more versatile,
he can spin it, he can roll it.

What BOTH of them do or don't do is hit up on the ball. The ball is
very clean off their hand, not using any energy, or "reading" the front
or first third of the lane. Most of the exempt players do this, have
an effortless clean release, no matter what position their hand is in.

Having a "soft" or "quiet" hand motion will loosen up your swing and
make you more accurate. You can have turn and still be clean, you just
won't be grinding the ball into the lane, making the ball read the lane
quickly/too quickly and burning up. This extra energy down lane helps
the ball hit better.

If you look at how their balls travel, you'll see that they ROLL more than
"spin". This allows the ball itself to "make the moves" based on its'
internal geometry, etc. (and how it may be drilled) rather than the bowler
trying to make the ball "perform".

Plus, they've been at it since the "Dark Ages" before urethane, rective, and
particle balls, so they know how to read lanes and such. ;)

Smokey, a rolling ball is going to hook sooner. You need skid to get
the ball down the lane. Baker throws a low track spinner and his ball
does "spin" to get it down the lane. Voss is a "stroker" and he uses
the oil to get his ball to skid down the lane.

I think it was mentioned in the telecast that he throws a spinner. John
Jowdy, well know coach and auther of bowling books also mentioned it his
book "Bowling Execution".

I'm glad to help YOU. If you want to e-mail me we can confer on the
answers and you can post them. ; )

My New Year is going good (knock on wood). One of my friends said he
was going to drop-off the newest issue of Bowling This Month on Monday.
There is nothing like reading a good bowling magazine to mess up you
game (and head).

Anyway, hop your New Year is a good one too.
