In this video I have marked out the Center to Edge lines and the Ghost Ball lines to show that the "pivot" which is so confusing is really just a SLIGHT body movement as the shooter moves to center ball. As the lines come back from the object ball they converge in the center of the cue ball and as they pass out the back of the cue ball they are just a millimeter at most and on top of each other at the least. Which basically means that looking at the shot from the back of the cue ball the SHOT line is never more than 1mm away from the Center to Edge line. Thus a TINY shift is all it takes to get to the shot line.

By following the CTE directions you will land on the shot line every time from almost any angle once you learn to accurately see the CTE line and orient yourself based off of it to come into the shot.

I put up all these lines to prove that following the exact same steps results in landing on the ghost ball line no matter the angle. If you choose you can mark your table in the same way and see it for yourself. THEN go to the other half of the table and do the shots without the lines marked and watch what happens.
