It helps that the corner pocket is HUGE, well over 5".

I think he set the record on a 9-foot GC. Of course that could have had 5-inch pockets. It was in 1988 in a Florida pool hall.

Yep, the CB would need to be about 1 closer to the rail.

I used to could make about 90% of these spot to spot shots back when I owned a pool room and had plenty of time to just practice stuff like that for long periods of time. I shoot just a hair above center medium speed and aim the center of the cue ball about 1/8 inch out from the side of the object ball.

Since the spot-to-spot shot is slightly thinner than a 45-degree cut, the actual hit required is very close to quarter-ball, which would be a quarter of 2.25 inches outside the object ball.
