(D&E) Drills & Exercises – CB Control (Draw) Skills (progressive): 1 D sets

(About the Author)

This progressive exercise to improve your shooting skills is in the book Drills & Exercises for Pool & Pocket Billiards.

This setup concentrates on controlled draws (1/2 D, 1 D, 1-1/2 D, 2 D distances).

Instructions:
DONUTS: one of OB – one for CB. (add another as a marker for the intended draw distance.

  1. Position the CB and OB. Pocket the OB and draw the CB back EXACTLY the intended distance.
  2. Re-spot OB and CB until you can precisely (within 1/2 ball) place the CB near the marker (3 consecutive successes).
  3. Move the marker donut to the next target position and repeat the learning process.

Proof of competence: THREE consecutive successful placements.

Suggestions: This can be done at different CB speeds. For slow speeds, place the tip as low as possible on the CB. At greater speeds, position the tip closer to CB center. Please note. Pocketing the ball is a REQUIREMENT. Doing the draw and missing the shot is a FAILURE.
