A friend of mine that plays pretty good. Beau Runnigan, has a very close eye span. When I was showing him Perfect Aim I found that he only had to move very slightly to make the right eye dominant and then the left eye dominant.

It hardly made a difference to him but it did ever so slightly.

Not just Beau but I had noticed this with other players that had their eyes closer together.

We still need to have the dominant eye in the most dominant position to see the shot the most correctly but I believe these players have a small advantage because their eyes almost naturally work like one. And I say almost. It's still very important for them to know where their sweet spot is when they really want to zero in a shot.

Giving a rediculous amount of lessons over the past few years gives me a huge advantage in seeing things that are almost obvious such as this.

But once a player, regardless of their eye width, learns where their sweet spot is and how to keep it there on every shot, there is no advantage for anyone.

we all have 2 hands, 2 eyes, a bunch of fingers. Once the eye thing is taken care of you can envision the shot just as good as anyone. Once you see it right many good things happen. That's why so many players get so excited once they learn how to really see the shot the best.

It is exciting.

At the same time though it is kind of funny....
