Billiard Instructional – Classic Drills

Samm Diep demonstrated a couple of these drills to me earlier this year. These Oldie Goldies have been around forever…and for good reason. These drills develop your ability to move the cue ball relatively short distances with precision.
Classic 1 – Take ball in hand on the first shot, then pocket the balls in order starting with the ball closest to the rail.

Classic 2 – Take ball in hand on the first shot, then make the balls in the side pocket in order. Be careful, the cue ball doesn’t need to move very far!

Classic 3 – Take ball in hand on the first shot, then make the balls in the upper left corner pocket in order starting with the ball closest to the rail. Once you master this drill with the object balls located at O1, move the object balls to zone O2 and cue ball to C2.
