Actually it can be done and is a great speed control drill. Make sure the cue ball is the same weight as the object ball. Put the cue ball on the head string close to the long rail. If you aim the object ball to the short rail side of the pocket it helps. Just slow roll the cue ball.

You will be amazed how often you can make it after you make it once.

I have spent some time with Thomas on and off the table. Definitely one of the good guys and confident enough that if he couldn't do it he would admit he failed.

I do agree though, much easier to make any shot when you have dialed it in for awhile than when the shot is a one time thing and may cost dearly if you miss.

For that one speed. A real drill would practice lots of speeds.

This, I made it on my 5th try and a few times after that. It's simple math, if you hit less than 50% of the OB the CB will travel further than the OB, if you hit 50% they will travel identical distances, more than 50% and the CB will travel less than the OB.
