    Terry, coaches charge a whack for info and tips - I'm not doing it to be funny - I'm just trying to make the thing a little bit more appealing - it really is quite basic when you think about it.

    It's to do with the eyes and how they can actually control your body, (or in this case, head) and stop it from moving.

    Not many coaches on here charge for advice although all of us will charge for a one-on-one session.

    I'm not a coach though Terry - even though I'd love to!

    Actually in your earlier post on this thread you mentioned about lifting your head up on back swing? It's to do with that (back swing) and the eyes.

    If you work it out from there, you're a star!

    Hendry does it.

    Guesses:

    1. If you have your head tilted so your cheek slightly touches your collar bone, ensure it stays touching as your head can't go up unless you start to contort.

    2. Chin stays on cue when the ball drops.

    That's me done!

    Whenever I record line ups or get footage of breaks when I have missed I guarantee it will be a long screw/stun shot and my head comes up massively. I look back at the video and fume as like a sodding meerkat up goes the head.

    2015 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYvTcw4Ks_E&t=143s 16 seconds
    2016 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zH1BQhLuis0 3m 28 secs
    2017 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTzKESzn5e4&t=149s 28 seconds

    I missed a green a couple of weeks ago for an 80 in a match with the rest of the colours all on the spots and one of the guys said, "I think you lifted your head a bit there mate," I'm sure when I look at the footage it'll be the same as the above.

    I think mines a build up in tension, the pause, then I move everything out of the way to get let the arm go through! When I'm working on it and everything is relaxed and balanced I stroke it, the timings great and the head is pretty still; as soon as there's a dodgy stun screw shot up comes the head.

    I have worked on this for 5 years but when the tension comes something doesn't remind me and it's meerkat city!

    A simple tip would be fantastic if it works.

    The tip:

    Mr Cox said I was doing this. Looking too late at the OB on my final back swing which was causing my head to move on shot.

    Instead, told me to look earlier at the OB on final back swing so that the eyes control the movement of the head (and the body)...

    Said if the eyes look early at the OB, then the head has no need to move....Eyes control head...

    When I deliver the cue now there is hardly any head movement...

    Works for me...

    A very simple tip I'm sure for some on here, but effective in my case...as head movement has been my bug bear in cue delivery...

    The routine...Just playing simple shots making sure you look early at the OB on final back swing and then deliver cue on committed line of aim...

    Brilliant tip from a brilliant coach Mr Cox...

    Every tip I've learnt from him has worked, really recommend a lesson with him!

    Struggling with that one Chris.

    I switch my eyes to the object ball at the same time as my cue starts to go backwards on the final backswing.
