Today we’re going to discuss how to throw the object ball. Essentially, throw is a way of making a shot even if you don’t have a clear path to your ball. To properly throw the ball, you’ll need to have command over using English. In the video below, you can see that the ball we want to make is obstructed by another ball and we can’t see a clear path to it.
To make this shot using throw, you’ll want to use outside English. In this situation, we want the object ball to go to the right, so we use left hand English. When you use left-hand English, you’re trying to get the spin the ball as much as possible without a lot of force going forward.
The spin grabs the ball and throws it. It’s essentially throwing it to the right, which helps you make your ball while leaving the obstructing ball untouched. This is a great technique that should help you quite a bit the next time you come across a shot that’s impossible to see.
