    If you been playing that long and are still guessing where to hit then maybe there's no hope
    Take a short video of you playing and let us help sort you out

    Watch some youtube videos of basic grip, stance and bridge. I see so many people doing the basics wrong and wondering why they're not potting any balls. I'm guessing your not cueing straight, and its probably because your grip is wrong, either too tight or your holding the cue too far back. Either of these would push the cue offline, and are probably the most common mistakes i see with beginners
