Tony, Hello and good day to you . My name is Tim I live in Northern Va and I would like to inquire about taking a lesson or two from you when I return home from Afghanistan sometime this August . Could you please pm me for prices and availability. Thank you .
Tony, btw -- I just noticed Mr. OCD's "Pendulum stroke sweet spot" thread is now closed. Looks like it caught the eye of some mods and they're hot on his trail. I don't wish bad for him, but man, the OCD meddling has to STOP! I've never seen anyone so lockjaw-fixated on such a known industry-standard "basic best-practice" foundational methodology. It's like he think's he's personally responsible for "taking it down," like he's some sort of Che Guevara pool rebel or something.
No problem, my friend. I would hate to see you let him prevent you from posting in the instructor forum. That would be a shame -- like not being allowed access to your "office" because there's a fly buzzing around. Just swat the fly -- put him on your Ignore List. Trust me, when his OCD rants aren't "in your face" out in the open, you won't be exposed to them, and you'll be able to relax. Also, if you do this, DON'T cheat -- don't click the "View Post" feature when you see his collapsed posts. Doing so voids the "sanity" warranty!
yup the coke bottle glasses and shaky hands are no good. Grab a 17-20 year old kid that can play, i mean a real player who knows what to do and let him rack, he would have perfect racks fast. The old guys dont see the balls come apart when they lift the rack off-thats what I noticed is the biggest issue. its just a better solution to the problem, not a knock on them, hell i'm 43 and Its harder for me to rack than it used to be. gotta keep it real, best eric
