  • Whitey, Howdy;

    "So by step, 1st. stand back to get the visual, 2nd. keep visual, 3rd. approach and lay cue across rail lined up on the shot, 4th. step into the shot."

    Sounds like a plan. However, ... I don't go way back just about cue's length
    that way I can slide it into alignment as I do the rest of the steps.

    "If it works, I'll make him up an index card listing the steps. "

    Don't forget the "Arthur Murray Dance Studio" footy prints , .

      Went to practice some more today, one of the regulars walked by and asked
      why I was waving my elbow around while I was stroking. DHOOO, head-slap!!!
      Started keeping my elbow and arm close to the body and danged if the cue ball
      wasn't right where I wanted it to. . Worked on it for another 2 hours
      and that bit of the OB's going off to the Right became less an less an less.
      Now I need to keep that thought in the back of my mind till it becomes more
      automatic. I had been unintentionally trying to counter-act the "Chicken-wing"
      by compensating. Well, Tourney tomorrow 8-ball. Will be working on it before
      and most likely during it. Wish someone had mentioned it sooner.

      Ps. Banks were going in when I needed them for the most part, when I
      missed I'd set them back up till I'd make the shot 5 times. Then move on.

        If the cue stick is close to / lightly touching your chest
        It might give you a reference and help the “ chicken wing”

          Larry, tried, I don't flex like that plus it would require a whole new stance ta-boot.

          Practiced with a few racks of rotation and I have the "check arm box" as last
          item before I turn the brain off (it's a lousy pool player anyway), and settle in
          for the shot. It was working pretty good. Outta 10 players I was the 4th best.
          Still have work to do.

          Thanks for the reply. Keep those thoughts and suggestions comin' folks.
          They are all appreciated.

            Been practicing, and playing the wee-bitty tourneys.
            I've not really been saying much as I had a Stent placed in one of my arteries
            the day after my last post. They kept me overnight and I'm doing better then I
            was before then. Just had to take it easy for about 7-10 days while the body
            adapts to the new equipment.
            I didn't avoid the tourneys, they are more fun then stress to me. There are only
            a few players there that have any kind of game. One is a Native American woman
            that used to play the tourneys at Gillie's in Houston awhile ago. She and I always
            have a good match-up. Just look each other in the eye, a nod that the game's on
            and it's what it's all about.

            Anyway, practice, practice, practice ...
