Shaw goes undefeated in Bradenton

Kim Shaw
Kim Shaw, one of the latest players to burst onto the American Ladies Pool scene, ran undefeated thru a field of 41 other players to win the August stop on the Ladies Florida Tour.
Shaw won the hot seat with a 9-4 victory over Penny Swann and then had to face Swann again after Penny dispatched Tracie Majors by the score of 9-7. The extended final match was all Kim Shaw as Kim won 11-2 to get the win.
Majors commented after the match, "Kim and I used to play Snooker against each other years ago and I remember how she plays. Kim shoots everything great. Long shots, safeties, everything."
Shaw commented, "I played very steady in the finals. My safeties and my potting were very good today. Penny played steady up until the finals but when she couldn't get to the table, she couldn't do much. I was prepared for the final match and I knew I had to keep her off the table in order to win."
Shaw collected $700 for the win while Swann took $475 for second. Tracie Majors and Debbie Schjodt filled out the top 4 spots and won $375 and $275 respectively. Tour points leader Jeannie Seaver finished tied for 9th but maintained the #1 spot on the points list.
