Keeping sharp-eyed with Ronnie!
Around the Academy:

Ronnie O'Sullivan

I'm Ronnie O'Sullivan and I'm one of the top snooker players in the world.

We've looked at the grip, the stance, the bridge hand and the cue action.

Now we come to the final part of the lesson - sighting.

Watch my masterclass

When you get down on the table, keep flicking between the white and the object ball.

It's just flickering with the eyes, your body should be perfectly still.

The last thing you want to do is look at the object ball.

It's all about keeping your body movement to a minimum and the whole action smooth.

Go on, get out on that baize and put everything that I've shown you together!
