Jeannie Seaver became the second player to win a stop on the newly-named Tiger Florida Tour (formerly, the Flamingo Tour), with an undefeated run on Saturday, July 12. The $400-added event drew 33 entrants to The Corner Pocket in Largo, FL.
For the third time in a row on the tour, Crystal McCormick was one of the event finalists, this time facing Seaver, instead of April Wallen. McCormick defeated Lyn Remsen, Vanessa Seaver, and Cassidy Mulligan to move among the event's final eight winners, and a re-draw to single elimination competition. Seaver, in the meantime, had received an opening round bye and then defeated Diane Chauliac, Stephanie Mitchell, and Kelly Cavanaugh. Also advancing from the winners' side of the bracket were Wallen and newcomer Amanda Newton. The four to advance from the losers' bracket were Sabra McArthur-Beahm, Helen Caukin, Jeannie Seaver's sister,Vanessa, and Maridana "Mike" Fitzgerald.
In the quarterfinal matchups, McCormick survived a double hill battle against McArthur-Beahm, as Caukin ended Wallen's hopes for a third straight win on the tour with a 7-5 victory. By the same score, Newton defeated Fitzgerald. Jeannie Seaver defeated her sister, Vanessa 7-3.
In the semifinals that followed, McCormick moved into her third straight final on the tour with a 7-1 victory over Caukin. Jeannie Seaver and Newton battled to double hill before Seaver prevailed to face McCormick in the finals. Seaver defeated McCormick 7-2 in the finals to complete her undefeated run and claim the event title.
Tour director Mimi McAndrews thanked room owner Stephanie Mitchell and her staff for their hospitality, as well as title sponsor Tiger Cues, Ozone Billiards and Boynton Billiards. The next stop on the Tiger Florida Tour, scheduled for August 9, will be hosted by the Wally's in Lakeland, FL.
