A key observation from years of coaching is the impact of cheek pressure on consistency and improvement in shooting. Excessive cheek pressure, often believed to provide a more aggressive approach, can actually hinder potential. This becomes more evident in older shooters, where balance and less body movement are crucial for consistent performance. In sporting clays, due to the diverse nature of target presentations, shooters typically rely more on hand and arm movements, emphasizing the importance of adaptable mechanics.
