He defeated Hendry 17—4 in the semi—finals, the most one-sided defeat ever in a World Championship semi—final.

I can even find the flaws where the assistant referee is not seeing straight across an offside position. Parallax error comes across in football in quite a huge way. Then again, perhaps that is why snooker is ripe for innovation.
What if there was another whole level of biomechanical efficiency to be unearthed? For Feeney, 20 years after he first conceived of SightRight and in the face of all his doubters along the way, that would be the ultimate vindication.
When you use this camera, your eye is behind the little rectangle that you see on the top right part of the body as pictured. The photography technology answer to the problem is the reflex camera where you aim at your subject directly through the lens — via a mirror — which allows you to see exactly the same image as the lens, but at the cost of additional weight and noise. How does this apply to snooker? That would be ideal… Unfortunately the player has two eyes and neither is at the same place as the tip.
Moreover, humans usually have a dominant eye. The eye causing the less shift is your dominant one, the one that primarily determines which image your brain receives. Achieving this is the main goal of the Sightright method, and correctly applied it can only work. This is not instant miracle method. Steve Feeney has his critics, indeed, but not all of them are criticizing his method. Actually some of the people he has a conflict with are actually so convinced by the method that they invested in his company.
