Lucasi Hybrid All-American Tour / Clinton, IA
Jesse Bowman escaped the clutches of Anthony Garcia in their hill-hill final match to emerge with the Lucasi Hybrid All-American Tour’s title for their October 9 tournament. The $500-added event, hosted by Legend’s Sports Bar in Clinton, IA, featured 41 players in a double-elimination 8-ball format on 7-foot bar boxes.
Bowman took down the A-side, completing his undefeated trek via wins over Scott Hargens in the winners’ side final four 7-3 and Cory Youngblut in the hot seat match 7-1. Youngblut had earlier vanquished Will Kohl 4-4 in the semifinals just prior to his loss to Bowman.
On the B-side Anthony Garcia and Mike Rohner eliminated John Gorsch 6-1 and John Sprague 4-3, respectively, at seventh place. In turn, in the next round Garcia won again by ousting Kohl 6-2, while Rohner was whitewashed by Hargens 6-0. Garcia then knocked out Hargens at fouirth place on the hill 6-5, and Garcia’s run continued to the finals when he bested Youngblut at third place by a 6-0 margin. The tournament finals between Bowman and Garcia went only one set, but it was a hill-hill set, as Bowman skimmed by Garcia 7-5 for the title.
