Well, it was just a practice game, not the US Open. However, it was still enough to make me jump up and down and yell a little bit. I've been playing a lot of Rotation lately to help with banks, combos, and kick shot practice. I played a safety on the six and left myself with this layout. (Note that I didn't memorize where all the balls were.) My best option seemed to be the two rail kick (Z kick). The 8 was partially blocking the direct route, so I figured I needed about a tip of running English.

I've made plenty of tough/lucky shots before, but this seemed to be a culmination of a few weeks of intense focus and practice for me. Hope you don't mind me posting it. :)

Z-kicks are some of the hardest to judge since the second rail can be so unpredictable. This is a great shot! Congrats!
