How to Make the "Golf Ball Bank" Beginner Pool Shot

Learn how to make the "Golf Ball Bank" beginner shot from pool trick shot champion Andy Segal in this Howcast video.


"Hi, I'm Andy ""the Magic Man"" Segal, I'm here at Willow Billiard in Hoboken, New Jersey doing some trick shots and pulling structures, so if you're ready, let's get started. So if you remember from the hustler bank, we had the eight ball and the cue ball frozen to the rail, this time they're close to the pocket, and we want the eight ball in the corner. Well, if the cue ball was here, it would kiss out and get out of the way, but what happens if it was here? Now the momentum of the cue ball is going to stay in the way of the eight ball, and the eight ball won't be able to bank. There is actually a way to make this shot, first, you get rid of the cue ball, replace it with a golf ball. Now, the golf ball is lighter, so it will get out of the way and allow the eight ball to bank.

And that's a hole in one. "
