The hand follows the eye its true, but the information sent to the brain by the eye is what is crucial and is what keeps the cue on line. The eye sees where the cue ball is, the eye sees where the object ball is, the eye sees where the cue ball has to strike the object ball in order to pot it. All this information is sent to the brain through the eyes including the bit about where exactly the contact point is on the cue ball also. This is all done on a subconscious level so cut shots are no different to full ball shots.

If you continue the way you are you will never improve beyond potting easy balls. Four years you've been on this site with a high break of 31.
What would Terry Griffiths say if you went to him with your theory and your resultant high break and say that it works for you ??
