    Score is based on the number of pins. Hooking or not has no factor. In fact you can get "Nice Throw" when the ball is straight.

    The number of pins you are able to knock down on a more consistent basis is increased due to physics.

    How can that kid talk about computers and the like and not understand the simple physics behind pin action?

    LOL, i'm going to post anyways.

    It is proven that hitting between the 1 and 3 (or 1 and 2 for lefties). Creates the most "pin action". Second best is "brooklyn" or hooking from right to left across the left face of the "pyramid" of pins. The worst practical way is to hit the head pin dead center, it creates way too many splits.

    Eh, just hit it where we tell you, don't ask any questions, and watch your score rise.

    It will take way too long for me to explain why exactly hooking it creates higher scores. The easiest way I can put it is that if you throw it dead straight and hit the ideal position (the middle pin and the pin to the right or left of it) the ball will deflect and certain pins are left standing 80% of the time. If the ball is hooking then the momentum will send more pins flying around ("pin action") and your chance of leaving any pins drops to 10-15%

    Look for any bowling event on ESPN. EVERY professional bowler hooks the ball. If you can't catch one and you want to get out then go to your local bowling alley during a legitimate league night and just watch.

    If you still have trouble believing me...just believe me. I have bowled for 8 years, worked in bowling alleys, attended numerous seminars, attended the most renowned bowling school in the world, along with numerous perfect games.

    Practice, you will get better.
