Great Southern Billiard Tour Kicks off at Karl’s Korner
By Joshua Johnson
Sixty three players have showed up ready to play for the $1000 first place prize in this weekend’s Great Southern Billiard Tour amateur 9-Ball event at Karl’s Korner in Cayce, SC. Scott Lewis is going to be trying to three-peat on the amateur circuit, but will have his work cut out for him as the field this weekend is a strong one. Lewis will have to get through Jason “J-Bird” Brown, Jason Heyward, Derek “Chew” Leonard, Jared “J-Rock” Mcgee, Greg Dix, Adam Pendley and Brian “Hump” Bagwell. First round action should kick off around 3:00 pm EST.
Players will be playing in a race to 8, alternating breaks, rack your own on 7-foot bar box tables and the action is sure to be fast and furious. Feature matches will be streamed live at www.ustream.tv/channel/greatsouthernbilliardtour .
Karl’s Korner is a cozy establishment in Cayce, SC, just outside of Columbia. It features seven 7-foot tables and a full service bar.
