Unstoppable Harrison takes tour 3!

June 1, 2014 in Competitions

Phil Harrison2_260x197After his tour 2 win all eyes were on Phil Harrison to see if he could achieve what no other player has so far, successive tour wins, and the Cambridgeshire cue man did not disappoint as he notched up his second tour win of the season. He made light work of what would have appeared to most people a tough draw with the likes of Shane Balding, Darryl Fallows and current World Champion Tom Cousins amongst his victims.

The final was an attacking affair, as would be expected with two great cueists. Harrison took an almost unassailable 7-3 lead barely missing a pot along the way before Cousins bounced back with a couple of fine clearances, but it was to be Harrisons night and he finished in style with a pinpoint clearance to take the tour 3 title and the £2400 winners cheque.

The second tour of the 2014 season was played out in new surroundings at the Hilton Metropole but it was a familiar name that took home the title. Phil Harrison showed just why he has a feared reputation with a fantastic performance, dropping only 4 frames in his first 4 matches. He then dispatched of tour 1 semi-finalist Steve Martin in an attacking display from both players with very little missed. Harrison then showed his class by beating both of the tour 1 finalists 8-5 in successive games in the semis and final to pick up his first tour title of 2014. Gavin Lomax followed up his tour 1 final with a repeat effort at tour 2 and looks a firm favourite to pick up a title before the year is out.
