What is the number 1 pin in bowling called?

The number 1 pin in bowling is called the headpin. It is always positioned in the front and center of the bowling lane. When the bowler aims to knock down all the pins, the first target is usually the headpin. Knocking down the headpin helps create a chain reaction, causing the other pins to fall down as well. So, it is crucial for a bowler to hit the headpin accurately in order to achieve a successful strike or spare.
