Daulton Dominates Great Southern Billiards Tour
Great Southern Billiard Tour / Macon, GA
by InsidePOOL Staff
Tournament director Shannon “The Cannon” Daulton took out a top field of 42 other players to take first place on the August 18-19 stop of the Great Southern Billiard Tour. Hosted by The Hole Thang in Macon, GA, this was a $1,500-added event.
With players such as Larry Nevel, Scotty Townsend, and Cliff Joyner, anything was possible. The field whittled down to 16 returning Sunday, which saw a hill-hill nail-biter between Townsend and Nevel, which saw Townsend advance after dropping the 9 ball on the break.
Daulton moved steadily through the winners’ side of the chart, defeating four strong players in Horace Godwin, Sammy Odom, Paul Turner, and finally George Rothrock to earn the hot seat. Now on the west side, Rothrock tried to fight his way back to the finals but was ousted by Towery, who went on to meet Daulton. On fire, Daulton gave Towery no shot, and he ran seven racks in a row to win the match 9-1.
