A bowling ball doesn't have any holes in the manufacturing stage. The most common number of holes drilled is 3 - 2 fingers and a thumb. In the early days and sometimes found today, there is only one finger and a thumb. If there's been some hand injury, sometimes an extra finger hole is drilled. Sometimes there is a counter balance hole drilled at or near the axis point to allow the dynamics of a bowling ball work better for a bowler. In tenpin bowling, regardless of the number of holes, you are only allowed a certain weight difference at the grip point, where there is top and bottom weight and left and right side weight.

How many holes can be drilled into a bowling ball?

The USBC (United States Bowling Congress) allows up to six holes to be legally drilled into a bowling ball: one for each finger being used to grip the ball, plus one additional one (colloquially known as the 'weight hole') to change the ball's center of gravity -- which affects how soon and by how much the ball will start to hook. The vast majority of bowlers, however, grip the ball with only two or three fingers; a very few might use a fourth (usually the little finger, or pinky). Therefore, finding a ball legally drilled with five or six holes is extremely rare.
