Nothing wrong, everything right, except that you do not do it on every shot. Develop a repeatable shot.

With the standard pendulim stroke, your grip hand should come to rest at or very near your pec, depending on body size and arm length. We call this the "home" position, and with a properly developed stroke, your grip hand should end up at home after every shot.

Have somebody stand behind you when you shoot to look at your arm. Ask them if it hangs straight down or if it looks a little slanted like this:

sort of tucked under you. Maybe you can have them take a digital photo so you can see it.

Write back with what you find out.

You're too low. Your body should not interfere with your stroke. Adopt a more upright stance.

If he hits his "pec" then his stroke should be complete. That's a Urban Myth about hitting your body. Read what Pooltchr has to say....SPF=randyg

If you haven't yet hit the cueball when you hit your pec, I might suggest you get closer to the cueball, but you'd have to be about 2 feet away fom it (bridge length)to begin with if you've hit your pec. first.
