Seminole Pro Tour / Jacksonville, FL
by Raymond Linares
The Seminole Pro Tour returns to action this weekend in Jacksonville, Fl. This $6,000-added event is being hosted by Bankshot Billiards and gracious owner Jeff Scott. Once again the tour has come with a star-studded 46-player field, including Mike Davis, Thorsten Hohmann, Corey Deuel, Johnny Archer, Tony Crosby, Tommy Kennedy, Steve Moore, Charlie Williams, and Chris Bartram. It promises to be a long and arduous road for the person who claims the title of champion for this, the fourth stop of the season.
Tournament matches began Friday, June 19, at 7 p.m. Some notable results included John Rouse defeating Kennedy 7-5 and Deuel sending Neil Fujiwara over to the one-loss side 7-5. Two other players who brought their A game for this tournament are Keith Bennett and Stoney Stone. Bennett, playing in only his second Seminole Pro Tour event, pounded Dave Grossman 7-0, while Stone crushed Arlo Walsman by the same score line.
Matches pick up again at noon Saturday with some fantastic action. Right out of the gate, it will be Davis versus Hohmann and Moore against Stone. Is there a better way to start off your Saturday?
Thanks again to The Seminole Tribe of Florida and Jeff Scott of Bankshot Billiards for putting on another great event. Stay tuned for future updates.
