Josh Newman went undefeated at the March 12-13 stop on the Great Southern Billiard Tour, besting a field of 36 amateur players to take the title.

Newman faced off against Jeff Jordan in the winners’ side final four and moved past him to the hot seat match 9-4. Meeting him there was Randy Jordan, who had just sent Chris Niksch to the one-loss side 9-4. Jordan put up a good fight in the winners’ side finals, but it was Newman who took the hot seat with a 9-4 win.

Once on the west side of the chart, Niksch quickly fell to Justin Bergman 10-1, while Jeff Jordan eliminated Chuck Dorsett 7-1. Jordan and Bergman advanced to the quarterfinals to play, and it was Bergman who took that match 10-4. Bergman was stopped by Jordan in the semifinals, though, as Jordan earned his rematch with Newman by ousting Bergman in third place 9-8. The players battled back and forth in the finals and seesawed to hill-hill when a missed 7 ball by Jordan allowed Newman to take the match 9-8.
