Track my pool play progress

Track my pool play progress

I am considering make an excel spreadsheet to track the statistics of games I play from now on. My purpose is to use this to have better understanding of both my strength and weakness in pool play.

My spreadsheet is pretty simple with a few columns like long shots, cuts, safe position, shots and so forth. I want to use this to track my success rate improvement over time.

I am wondering that has anyone of you ever made this by yourselves or seen this type of form before. Can you guys give me some advices? This form needs to be easy to use and it needs to work to my purpose.

    I have never heard of anyone doing this, but that does not mean someone has done it and never mentioned it. It is a good way to keep track your wins, losses and opponents much the same way the various leagues (APA,BCA) keep track of their teams and performance. values.

    If you are going to program in the various shots you will be making, or not making, I'm sure, in time, it will show many of your weak shots and your better shots that you will have to keep a daily log of. To me it seems like an awful lot of work to keep track of something that should be obvious in your every day play. You have to remember, the game changes on different tables and matches oftentimes take on a life of their own so there will be some shots that will change depending on the game you are playing i.e. 8 ball, 9 ball, straight 14.1 etc cetra.

    So in the long run, you will have to ask yourself if all that work will make a difference in your game. Or, will it create chaos.

    I've keep note books for 3 years in a small Memo Book. Notes I've keep are things like hitting to thick or to thin, runs, problem shots, english and what to practice the next time I play. Lots more but no need to drag it out.

    If I got a lesson I also took notes. If I was taught a new shot I would make a note and even a diagram. If I met a new player I'd add their name so I wouldn't forget it next time we played. I play a lot of different people, perhaps as many as 40 and hate to ask someone's name more then once.

    I've gotten to the point to where I'm taking less notes now. My game has advanced to where I recognize the problem and correct it quickly now. There are only three things that can cause me to miss a shot now and I can correct it the next time at the table if I get one. SPF, CTE, and the quiet eye but not in necessarily in that order.

    I just started using forms, but just to track my drills. And also I used my form to track my game, but I found out that it's very hard to track because I always forgot. I guess I have to get used to it and not to be distracted by trying remember my shots.
