Jason Theron won the US Open Global Qualifier, South Africa! What a fantastic end to the weekend for KZN based Jason Theron (Vadins) who carved his way through a tough field to win two honours at the US Open Qualifier.
A difficult match against Darren Barnard almost cost him a spot as it went down to a decider. From that point, Jason upped a GEAR.
Jason came up against old rival and good friend Aden Joseph (Pandas) who currently seems to be unstoppable on the 9-foot tables.
The match was evenly contested at 6 – 6 as both players traded blows and took run out after run out.
After a few careless errors by Aden, Jason took advantage and stamped his authority on the match running into a 10 – 6 lead and finally closed off the match with 11 – 7.
Jason has earned himself a spot in the US Open valued at $1000 as well as R20 000 cash towards his flights and accommodation compliments of a generous sponsor from KWV.
We would like to thank KWV for the sponsorship and hope we can forge a stronger partnership with them in the years to come.
The 1st ever South African Tour Championship event was played as a pre-event to the US OPEN Qualifier, South Africa.
With half the field made up from local players, Panda’s tried to make an impact. New Panda recruits, Darren Barnard and Shane Nolan made it into the last 8. Fellow Pandas who made it into the last 8 were Nicola Rossouw, Vincent Halliday and Aden Joseph.
Aden did it AGAIN!
He won the first South African Tour Championship Stage 1 event.
1st Aden Joseph (Pandas)
2nd Craig Bouwer (Vadins)
3rd Jamiel Jacobs (Vadins)
Congratulations to all who participated in this prestigious event!
With new faces on the circuit like Johann Fourie, Suzette Boyens and Amy King.
NEXT event on the calendar: 1-3 May 2020 at Pandas. – Hendry Erasmus
