2. Commit fully to a line of aim

Feedback from Patrick H.

Hi Nic,

I was having a miserable time last week. After a month off snooker, I seemed to have gone backwards – despite improving last year, largely down to more focussed practise – often using your tips and techniques.

Then I read Number 2/3 and everything changed. I started to commit to the line of aim and balls started to go in. Then I managed to keep my eye on the object ball consistently as well, and suddenly I made a total clearance with the line-up. This is the first time I’ve done this in about 25 years (I think I managed this two or three times when I played a lot in my late teens). Needless to say, I was over the moon!!!
