Banging Balls vs Drills - November 2008
WHAT MAKES YOU BETTER How do you know your Game is improving? What if I can show you a way to measurably see your progress toward increasing your handicap? I can and it’s through the time tested method of training drills. I have the rudiments to push you past the plateaus that seem to hold you back.
PRACTICE IS BORING Admit it! You don’t really practice do you? You play a lot of pool. You even compete sometimes – but practice? That’s BORING!!! Why is that? Because the majority of players don’t know how to practice, or at least practice effectively. I’m going to help you make practicing more productive.
ALWAYS WARM UP FIRST Most of the time, you walk up to the table, empty a few pockets, and start drilling balls into the holes. This is not warming up; that’s just banging balls around the table. However, on league night or before the start of a tournament, you need to get warmed up – the right way. Completing one Pro Skill Drill will warm you up more than 30 minutes of banging balls can.
FOCUS AND FINE TUNE SHOT MAKING Nothing increases your playing skills like practice drills. They develop your utmost in focused concentration, isolation in shot making, and establish your pacing for technique and execution. Your overall player skill level will be improved through practicing these professional drills. The Pro Skill Drills series of books and DVD’s, six volumes in all, will develop your focus, fine tune your shot making skills, and build your playing consistency.
DRILLS ARE TIME-PROVEN “I wish I would have had these practice drills when I was learning how to shoot pool years ago. Today, I’m proud to say I have won the World Champion title eight times, and the only player in history to have won it in all five disciplines of pool. Also, I’m honored to be in the Billiard Congress of America’s Hall of Fame. It was through years of working with drills like these that gave me the tools that I’ve used to win.” Nick Varner
Now you can use these fully illustrated Books and DVDs to establish your pace of play and mechanical consistency. You speed control for making cue ball position, will be perfected within hours – not years. During play, shot patterns will become clear within seconds. Outside distractions will not divide your attention. You will win more games of pool in direct proportion to your ability to execute each of these Pro Skill Drills successfully.
Here’s a sample of a Pro Skill Drill called: Walking The Line: This drill is perfect for warming up and getting the feel for the table you’re going to play on. Level I. 1. Start with Ball In Hand from either end of the table. 2. Make any ball in any pocket 3. Avoid hitting any of the other balls on each shot. 4. If you miss or hit another ball, reset the line and start over. Level II. 1. Start with Ball In Hand from either end of the table. 2. Start with an end ball, pocket each ball in any pocket, however, be sure to make them in successive order. 3. Avoid hitting any of the other balls on each shot. 4. If you miss a shot or hit another ball, reset the line and start over.
Finally, I believe that the first step to making it to the winner’s circle today is to have the skill building knowledge that Pro Skill Drills offers. We know for a fact that if you can do these drills 7 out of 10 times, you’ll be good enough to beat 70% of the players you meet.
