(S&D) Safety & Defense - "Wrist" Stroke Exercises

Safety Toolbox (Advanced)

(This is today's bit of advice from the book Safety Toolbox.)

Use the exercise below and learn to move the cue ball over precise distances.

  1. Place a donut (paper reinforcement ring) where the cue ball starts.
  2. Put the Post-It sheet about a diamond away from the cue ball.
  3. Shoot the object ball onto the Repeat until mastered.
  4. Move the sheet closer and master that
  5. Continue working on finer and finer control.

Repeat this once a month. During a competition, a couple of slow roll practice strokes are all that is needed to remind your muscle memory.

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.
