Hello and thanks for replying. This is a drill I do often. Stop, follow, or draw at various lengths to really make sure my stroke is dead on. It is not consistent, so this is my main drill. I struggle with my center vision being to the left (I shoot right), so I either stand more open or try and bring the cue slightly under me. I still can't decide which is more consistent or better in the long run... but I at least got to the point of figuring out two ways to shoot accurately.
Leigh, it looks like you are going in the right direction. Are you ready for more? Well here goes.
The next step is set up the same shot. Shoot it with left English until you can consistently spin the cue ball in place and make the object ball.. I like to use a measles cue ball and make the spots disappear.
The next 4 steps are to:
1. Use low/left... and draw the cue ball various distances.
2. Use high/left...and make the cue ball follow for various distances.
3. Use low/ right... and draw the cue ball various distances.
4. Use high/right...and follow the cue ball various distances.
Do each of the steps until you are proficient at each. Experience each of these at various speeds. All straight in shots.
When you are ready for more...let me know.
