Quick-Quick poll: do you look at the golf ball last or the flag on the green last when you make a golf swing?:grin:
The golf ball is at your feet, not in your line of sight, meaning you can't aim the golf ball like you can the cue ball, and although making the golf ball in the hole from 200+ yards away would be nice, you are really aiming for a fairly large area. In pool, there is no margin of error. You have hit an exact spot on the object ball.
This has all been explained in depth earlier in the post, if you care to go back and read everything.
