Need A New Billiards Coach?

I’ve always been a fan of technology and what it can do for me. Recently I just saw this article about an app where Alison Fisher can coach your pool game. Pretty cool right?

This world champion was selected to be the rep for pool and cue sports. The app is an overall sports training but it features one-on-one coaching tips from legendary players and coaches like Fisher.
