Shannon Daulton, Adam Towery, Randy Jordan, & Daryl Gables (Owner of Chalk It Up Billiards - La Gran


Adam Towery faced three different opponents in the final three matches of his undefeated performance on the Great Southern Billiard Tour's Spring Fling Amateur Bar Table Championships, April 20-21. Towery defeated them all, on his way to the event title, with its guaranteed $5,000 payout for a full field of 64. It drew 67 to Chalk It Up Billiards in La Grange, GA.

The first of Towery's final three was J.R. Rossman, in one of the winners' side semifinals, as Matthew Cummings and Daryl Gables (owner of Chalk It Up Billiards) squared off in the other. Towery got into the hot seat match with a 9-7 win over Rossman, and was met by Cummings, who'd defeated Gables 7-5. Towery took care of the second of his final three with a 9-3 win that left him in the hot seat.

Rossman moved over and picked up Randy Jordan, who was on a loss-side streak that would take him all the way to the finals, having defeated Jason Stewart 11-5 and, in a re-match, Stoney Stone 11-3. Gables picked up Timmy Heath, who'd gotten by Jeff Hooks 9-3 and Matt Dewease 9-6 to reach him. Jordan and Heath advanced; Jordan with an 11-7 win over Rossman and Heath, 9-4 over Gables.

Randy Jordan took the quarterfinal match against Heath that followed 11-7. He then took down Matthew Cummings in the semifinals 11-6 to become Towery's final opponent. Towery, an A player, started with two on the wire, and though Jordan would chalk up nine games, so did Towery to win it.

Tour directors Shannon and Marge Daulton thanked Gables and his staff for their hospitality, as well as sponsors Nick Varner Cues & Cases, Delta 13 Racks, Andy Gilbert Custom Cues, Tiger Products, and Lomax Custom Cues. The next stop on the GSBT, at which they will switch things up to play 8-ball, will be held at Shore Thing Billiards in Myrtle Beach, SC on May 4-5.
