Draw Shot Help

Draw Shot Help

I just picked up billiards as a hobby, found a decent pool table on craigslist for $75, and I have been practicing lots.

There is one thing that I have been having the most trouble with and its the draw shot.

Does anyone have any tips for improving draw shots? I will hit the cue ball about a half a tip below the center with a level stroke and do a 4 inch follow through and it always jumps, even when I don't follow through.

Any advice on what I am doing wrong or something that I need to do would be greatly appreciated.

    You may think you are following through but you are not. The draw shot, unlike most other shots, is a "feel" shot. And if you are a beginner there are many other shots that you will better off learning and will serve your game better. It is about the prettiest shot on the table and the most difficult to master.

    A good way to think about follow through is to get the feel that you are trying to drive the cue tip through the object ball and into the pocket. You cue can be about 1 tip below the equator. Your grip very light in the hand and your eyes never leaving the object ball. The bottom line is, it is all in the stroke. Develop a good stroke and the draw will follow. It will take time....do not rush it.
