Move eight boards to your left. You might feel like you’re throwing directly at the gutter, but if you use a proper release and speed, the ball will hang on and knock down the 10 pin.
This is often the most difficult pin to pick up, especially for beginning bowlers, and is frequently the sole motivation for a bowler to purchase a plastic spare ball. With practice and minor adjustments, you’ll figure out your best option, and may not need to purchase a spare ball.
