Favorite Strokes

I have been developing two favorite strokes.

The strong shot has maximum confidence.
Hit hard enough to go about 3 lengths without opposition.
Usually with low english, or stop, or float.
I like the sound of a clean hit at that speed.

The other favorite is the finesse shot.
Usually with follow,
and sometimes with english enough to throw the object ball,
arriving with just enough energy to drop,
fully spent,
into the pocket.
There is peace and beauty in slow motion.
Elegance through Simplicity.
