Pool Shot Aiming Drill

Pool Shot Aiming Drill

This drill is designed to help you improve shots that are far from "straight in" and to help you with your billiard shot aiming, and consistency.

Pool Shot Aiming Drill

To begin, set up all of the object balls in a semi-circle around any pocket. Then pick a starting position for the cue ball that is some distance down the long side of the table. Once everything is set up you can start shooting at the object balls beginning with the one closest to the rail and working your way out as you sink each one.

Be sure to bring the cue ball back to the same position as you sink each cue ball. This will ensure that you are exposed to a full array of angles.

If you miss a shot or sink the cue ball you have to begin the entire billiard drill all over again.

Pool Shot Aiming Drill

This exercise should give you some decent aiming practice since you'll get the full range of angles.

Once you become comfortable with "running all of the balls around the pocket, try moving to a side pocket, or switching to the opposite corner pocket. You can also increase the distance between the cue ball and object balls.
