Nudging, exercise 1
In this exercise, place the cue ball a ball width from the target ball. Tap the cue ball to send the target ball to the cushion. Once that is under control, start with a half-ball starting distance. This shot is easier to master if you imagine the complete shot before you make the stroke.
