Deconstructing the Jump Shot


Bridge
First and foremost, you’re going to be using an open bridge on most jump shots, because you are approaching the cue ball and such an extreme angle.

As you can see in the photos at the top, find the contact point on the cue ball with a relaxed bridge — one with your palm on the rail or table so you’re not at such a steep angle coming into the cue ball. With your cue grooved between your thumb and the first knuckle on your pointer finger, align the cue with the shot line.

When confident you are locked in on the object ball, lift the palm of your hand off the table, so you can get the proper angle on the cue ball. Make sure to keep a little weight on your fingers that are still in contact with the table, so you’ll have a sturdy bridge before, during and after the actual stroke.
