I wonder how these tiers correspond to Fargo ratings. Typically...

Right Foot on the Shot Line

To be fair, Mark Wilson also recommends having the toes of the right foot on the shot line.

The photos in the book do show Mark’s toes about half an inch to the left of the painters tape on the...

This sounds right to me. It’s the “confirm your aim” part that I’m wondering about. (This is getting down to a really minute level that’s almost unconscious.) Do your eyes trace a line from the cue...
