Ladies Join Music City Open
Music City 9-Ball Open / JOB Billiards, Madison, TN
The Music City 9-Ball Open is in full swing at JOB Billiards in Madison, TN, with the beginning field of 109 players narrowed to 16 on the one-loss side and 16 undefeated players in the open division. Also, the ladies’ division kicked off January 16 with 29 contestants.
Defending champion Johnathan “Hennessee From Tennessee” Pinegar is still alive in the open division, although he will have to fight his way through the west side of the chart if he is going to repeat. He suffered a second-round loss to Matt Beckwith 11-4, but since then has been going strong. He notched victories over Jason Christopher 11-1, Mark McClellan 11-6, and Eddie Adams 11-6. His next match will be facing Cliff Joyner. Joyner won his first two matches but was sent to the left side after his third-round match against Jerry Clayman 11-9.
