It has been pointed out to me that the distance that I place the cue tip from the edge of the cb varies constantly and that is a huge factor in the inconsistency of my game. I do understand that if you hold the tip too far from the cb, you're not hitting the cb at the exact spot you're aiming at. However, I am so afraid I'm going to hit the cb accidentally if I get too close. My game is bad enough without a foul every time I get up to shoot, LOL.
I have vowed to work on this. Getting the tip closer to the cb when aiming and stroking. CC has told me that I should be able to see the reflection of the tip in the ball. That's just sooooooo close. Would like some views and/or opinions about this subject. What do you do? How close do you get to the cb? And how in the heck do you manage not to hit the cb by mistake?
