Be like me telling you how to draw a ball 24'' and then how to draw it 40''. Practice and more practice.
Like Bill says here. It's a feel thing.

The way I handle it mentally is, after getting down on the shot, I feel like I'm PUSHING the cue ball OFF of the OB. I feel this in my warm up strokes and my cue delivery.

Just think " I want to push the cue ball off of the OB ball." You have to feel it in your grip hand and cue delivery.

Once you get a feel for it, position play will come a lot easier.

I don't play One Pocket as much as I use to, but when I do, I play at Cue & Cushion - Overland, MO.

In Memory of Dean Higgs and Harry Sims - gone but not forgotten and thank you.

I tried both the carom method mentioned earlier in this section and your “ push the cueball” in a practice session I had today. I understand both concepts better and both have their application.
