It seems like anytime PBA Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. bowls two-handed in a tournament, videos pop up on social media and people are mesmerized the 58-year-old is using the style. Truth is, he’s been messing around with it for over 10 years.
Williams, arguably the greatest bowler of all time, has won all of his 47 career national title and 11 PBA50 titles bowling one-handed. However, over the past year he’s started taking two-handed bowling a little more seriously.
These are his best 2 hands bowling moments at PBA50 Tours this year:
At the recent United States Bowling Congress Senior Masters, Williams bowled seven of the 15 games in qualifying using the two-handed delivery. He ended up qualifying for the match-play bracket in a tie for 14th place with a 222.27 average.
“Every year, I’d go out on the regular tour and see these kids, and I knew I needed to learn how to bowl two-handed but never worked at it,” Williams said. “This last winter, I worked at it a little bit, not a lot, but a little bit. I still have a long way to go, but the first thing I worked on was throwing the ball a lot harder. So now, I can throw the ball halfway decent, but I’m not as accurate, obviously, as I am bowling one-handed.”
