We are moving around the table smoothly, naturally, pocketing balls and suddenly we are interrupted by something. We wait a few seconds to let the distraction pass. We then blungeon the ball into the rail!! “he interrupted my rhythm” we may say.
I have learned many years ago, rhythm is not my pace around the table. There are too many distractions for that. RHYTHM IS THE PROPERTY OF EACH INDIVIDUAL SHOT.
Your pre-shot routine that can be natural or taught, has been interrupted. The other shots that were successful HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH EACH OTHER.
THE FIX: When your run is interrupted you simply must pay attention to your pre-shot habits and do not change them. This can be practiced with the cell phone alarm. Set it and randomly reset after it goes off. Practicing your reaction to interruptions is key to keeping individual shot rhythm. Enjoy!
