In this practice drill you will be finding the hit on the cue ball in order to draw the ball back to the center of the table. Set up the shot around three quarter ball.
Mark the ball positions on the table for consistency. Use ring binder reinforcers or something that will not mark the cloth permanently.
There is no one technique that will work for all players because everyone’s stroke is a little different.
You have to spend some time at the table in order to find your own way:
- Adjust the tightness of your grip
- Experiment with tip contact position
- Try the shot at different cue speeds

Do not be judgemental, there are no bad shots. If you miss the pocket or the intended position you have just learned what doesn’t work and that is a positive achievement.
