Frost, Mastermaker and Moore Score US Open Wins

Scott Frost

Day one of the 38th Annual US Open 9-Ball Championship kicked off with a handful of matches in the evening rounds. With the field at 170 players, the first rounds of this event featured quite a few byes and very few actual matches. 


The 6:30 round saw a rusty Scott Frost fight off a charge from local favorite Mike McNaughton. Frost looked to be in charge at 3-1, when a missed 9-ball appeared to take the wind out of him. McNaughton stayed with Frost and took his first lead at 7-6, but that only served to get the Freezer's attention. Frost won the next five racks for the 11-7 win.


The 8:30 round's TV match saw Danny Mastermaker make quick work of Puerto Rico's Omar Santiago Roman. Mastermaker appeared to be a little hesitant early in the match, but quickly shook off any "TV Table Nerves" and ran away with an 11-3 win.


The final TV match of the night saw two local favorites facing off as Eric Moore took on longtime Q-Masters housepro Dave Bollman. Bollman gave it all he had, but came up short to Moore with an 11-7 scoreline.


Other notable winners on Sunday night included Mario Morra, Chris Futrell and Bill Mason.


Play begins at 10:00 AM EST on Monday, and will continue feature seven rounds of play.
