    If you can master the positioning of the white ball, you can pretty much master the game in a blink of an eye. This includes the speed, distance and angle. The position that your arm is in when you hit the cue ball is fairly important for making the shot.

If I need to move the cueball from point A to point B, I just put the tip on the part of the cueball that I think is right...I don't think to myself "ok, half a tip of right english here, half a tip above center" or think "I need to hit this at 1:30". Do you think that if a person has an exact precision method for most of their shots it would improve their game, or is it just a waste of time. And do the pros go by feel or is it a system that they use.
    You can over think things. I try to use high and low English to position the cue ball. If needed I adjust speed as the second tool and side English rarely.
