Boy did I have a lot of fun with this. Not because I did well, quite the contrary...I was quite sure going into it that I would do poorly. I simply love the content and the structure.
I didn't even try to keep score, as I knew it would be bad. I spent about 90 minutes working on the drills from the first course.
F1 (cut shot): I did OK, for me. Still poor results, but I wasn't surprised.
F2 (stop shot): Again, OK for me, still not good.
F3 (Follow): 8 -- I felt that I did fairly well on this one, again for my ability. Which leads to....
F4 (Draw): 6 -- I did quite poorly on this one. Draw at distance has always been a challenge for me, and tonight was no exception.
F5 (Stun): 7 -- I was pleasantly surprised with how I did with this. Still wouldn't be a good score, but it wasn't as bad as I expected.
F6: 6 (Pocketing) -- Not bad. Not great, but not bad.
F7: 8 (Wagon wheel) -- This was my biggest surprise of the night. Going into it, I felt this would be my biggest challenge, and I did better than expected.
F8: 10 (Grid target) -- I didn't get to this one.
Realize that I am what I consider to be a mediocre APA 5. This was on a 9-footer with moderately tight pockets. After a couple more sessions of work, I will actually keep score for real, and post it accordingly.
I am really thrilled to have this material to work with, in this format. I really appreciate it. I can't wait to get back to it some more. Thanks again, folks.
yes the structure and format are very good, and it creates a bench mark kinda thing so a person could do it on a regular basis and see how they are improving. kinda fun too
