Greg Sandifer Three-Peats to Win the Sixth Stop on the 2015 Omega Billiards Tour

Greg Sandifer, Robert Clark and Daniel Herring
On the weekend of June 27-28, the Omega Billiards Tour was hosted by Rusty’s Billiards in Fort Worth, Texas.   The staff and owners treated the players well and took care of all us all weekend long covering very long hours.  
Who would win this event? By Sunday afternoon – there was no telling!  Top ranked players still vying for the crown included Tony Sulsar, Robert Clark, Cory Anderson, Daniel Herring, Greg Sandifer, Crispian Ng, Mike Voelkering and Jersey Jack Lynch.   Each of these players have placed in the top 6 or won an Omega event in the past, so it wasn’t clear who would prevail because of all the talent.  
Mike Voelkering and Crispian Ng would place 7th/8th after hard fought matches all weekend.  Richard Parilla was taking down the champs until he ran into Daniel Herring and Greg Sandifer.  He would place his highest finish yet on the tour with a 5th place finish.  Joining him in the 5th place spot was Jersey Jack who lost a tough hill-hill match on the winner’s side against Robert Clark.  Cory Anderson would lose his second match in the tournament and keep fighting through match after match to earn 4th place.  3rd place was filled out by the always-tough Daniel Herring.  
Robert Clark had his hands full all weekend and keep the fans on their toes.  He defeated Doug Pitts 7-4, Anthony Shea 8-6, Robert Kempf 8-0, Tony Sulsar 8-5, Jersey Jack hill-hill and then Daniel Herring hill-hill to win the hotseat.  Greg Sandifer had his hands full all weekend also and defeated James Dye and Cory Anderson before being sent to the left side by Crispian Ng Saturday night.  On Sunday, Greg defeated Ricky Carpenter 7-4, Steve Raynes 7-2, Tony Sulsar 7-6, Mike Voelkering 7-4, Richard Parilla 7-3, Cory Anderson 7-6, and then Daniel Herring 7-5 to earn a spot in the finals with Robert Clark.
The finals were a great display of tough shots, nice run outs, and skill.  Greg would win the first set 7-4 to force a second set.  While Robert fought hard again, Greg would win the second set also 7-4 to capture his third Omega tournament – and the first time a player has won three in a row on the Omega Tour!  Congrats to Robert Clark for his highest finish yet on the Omega Tour with his second place finish, and to Greg for another fantastic tournament.  
Congrats’ to ALL the players for a great event!
