I think YouTube might have a couple or three...

Belmo's footwork has gotten way better in the last 3-4 years.  Perfect balance blended with all that power.  Would definitely be a good starting point for emulating a 2-handed bowling technique.

I talked about this in a podcast a couple weeks ago.  His mechanics are so quiet and efficient now that all the longevity talk people brought up several years ago is moot.  He puts less effort into his shot than a lot of 1 handers do now.  People are running out of legitimate complaints against 2 handed bowling.

My only complaint about 2 handed bowling is I don't really want to have to learn it to teach my young son how to do it.  I have showed him videos as its definitely the way to go for the future.  Good thing for lessons I suppose.

One afternoon after many games my son's thumb was getting tore up so I said try two handed.  He said how?  I said just like this.  Never tried it before but I did it, not a strike but I hit my lay down point, break point, and the head pin at least.  The hardest part is getting down with a lot of spine tilt so you can project the ball straight out instead of lofting it down the lane. 

Do I want to try two handed some more and see what I can do with it, absolutely not!!!
Also I have to mention it is amazingly easy to throw a flat shot straight across the lane at the ten pin.  Your thumb ain't in the ball, duh.  I don't know why I see so many two handers missing 10 pins still trying to rev the ball.

I am 44 years old and still use the method.  Ball speed is still around 18 at release with 500 rev rate.  Fortunately my back is still in good shape even after 20 years of bowling this way full time.
