Buddy Hall Wins Senior Masters

“Rifleman” Buddy Hall won the Senior Masters VI over the weekend at Steve Mizerak’s Billiards in Lake Park, Fla.

The event was double elimination, race-to-9, with a single race to 11 in the finals. The event was sponsored by The Seminole Tribe of Florida.

Hall lost his first match of the tournament to bearded sharpshooter Howard Vickery. After nine wins on the one-loss side, including triumphs over Ron Park and Bob Ogburn, Hall secured a spot in the final. He faced Wade Crane in the title match, and at first he trailed Crane 6-1, but he caught up with and passed by his competitor for an 11-7 win.

Hall took home $10,000 for the win, while Crane settled for $6,000. Ogburn and Vickery took third and fourth, respectively.
