Came across the following picture and thought it was a decent way of becoming an automatic player. There have been sometimes where I have done this instead of looking for that spot on the ball. A lot of times I will visualize the path the object ball will take before figuring out where to aim. It is almost like I am able to see the path on the felt that the ball will follow.
I would like to thank the Temple of Pool for putting together this nice little graphic. https://www.facebook.com/TempleOfPool/ is there Facebook page.
