    Default Body Sway

    Hi guys and gals im looking for some advice!

    When im down on a shot and I take my shot people have said that my body is moving a lot like its swaying. I personally don't notice it but im getting breaks of 30 - 40 kinda regular but im wondering what would I play like if I didn't have the body sway and managed to keep still when taking my shot.
    Well my question is how can I remedy this?

    P.s. im thinking of paying 200 to have a coaching session with nigel bond in sheffield at some point early next year to try and get the kinks out of my game but thought I would ask you guys and gals first so I can try and work on it before hand.

    Why pay 200 for someone to spot something you already know about ?
    To stop the swaying try taking a deep breath and hold it in when down on the shot, this tightens your body core without affecting your arm but if you're a very slow player you may pass out a few times
    Speak up, you've got to speak up against the madness, you've got speak your mind if you dare
    but don't try to get yourself elected, for if you do you'll have to cut your hair

    Swaying can often be caused by a narrow stance. You need a solid base, be it a boxer stance or standing square on.
    No cheap shots...well maybe the odd one if its funny...

    Hi there. Yes, it's a good idea to let somebody have a look at your technique. It could be caused by an number of things. So getting set up correctly and knowing your technique is right, is a very good starting point.

    And don't hold your breath on the shot.

    Surely a few breaths are OK, but having a peg on the nose and closing mouth for last feather and shot would work?

    No wonder he's swaying on the shot... The peg is upsetting his balance!

    Maybe some very heavy ear-rings etc may help?

    Being a little serious: this is more likely to be mental than physical, imho.
