    Randy Pedersen of Storm Bowling Products provides tips for dealing with pressure when bowling.

    Randy Petersen: Hi everybody! I'm Randy Peterson for Storm Bowling Products. Today, we're going to talk about pressure and how to deal with it. It's a dreadful seven letter word, isn't it? We've all experienced it at some point, whether it's bowling in league, or maybe in tournament competition.

    But I'm here to tell you, you don't want to shy away from pressure, you want to let it in. Drink the pressure in, invite it. Pressure is what makes it fun in sports. Are you the type of player that shies away from it or do you want the ball in the fourth quarter?

    The best example of this would have been at the 2012 United States Open, when Pete Weber got up in the 10th frame needing a strike to win his fifth unprecedented US Open title.

    Pete stepped up in through the most beautiful strike ever recorded on television. And when I asked him afterwards, Pete, well what went through your mind, when you got up in the 10th frame? And Pete looked to me, and he said, Randy, nothing.

    So there you've it. That's the mindset we're looking for. Use these great tips and I promise you'll be a much better bowler under pressure.
