Great Southern Billiards Win for White
Great Southern Billiard Tour / Lynchburg, VA
Brian White went unchallenged through the field at the Great Southern Billiard Tour’s August 20-21 stop to claim the title over Ron Park in the finals. The $1,500-added event attracted 57 amateur players to vie for top honors at The Clubhouse Bar and Billiards in Lynchburg, VA.
In the winners’ side final four, White matched up with Park for the first time and sent him to the one-loss side 10-7. In the other winners’ side match, Doug Schulz easily handled Greg Taylor 9-2. White then had little trouble dispatching Schulz to the west side with a 10-4 win.
Forced to make his bid from the left side of the bracket, Park started by eliminating Tommy Cook in fifth place 9-4. Tying with Cook was Taylor, who went double-hill with Brian Bryant before being ousted 9-8. The following round saw Bryant engage in another hill-hill bout, but this time he was the one going home early 9-8 as Park advanced to the semifinals.
Park handled Schulz easily in the next round, sending him home in third place with a 9-4 win. But in the finals, White was too strong, and it was White who won the title 10-4.
