Why do bowling balls have 3 holes, not 5?

Because you hold them with three fingers.

It would be incredibly difficult to 'spin' the bowling ball if all 5 fingers were inserted into the ball. With just 3 fingers inserted, you are left with your index and middle finger to control your spin. This gives you a lot of control to weigh the correct amount of spin and curve control. This simple 3 finger set up gives you the contol of spin and curve which makes it possible to hit any pin .

That prevents people from trying to throw it overhand.

Because even at 3 holes, it is hard to dislodge them. Five fingered balls would be impossible to release.

The Original Bowling balls had only two holes. They added the third hole later on.

It would be much more difficult to release and control the ball with 4 fingers and your thumb.
