Jimmy "Superfly" Majors went undefeated to win the 8-Ball & 9-Ball Open in the 7th year of the events
New Iberia,Louisiana - The 2012 Ozone Billiards US Amateur Open returned in its 7th year and saw it's first sweep of the Open Divisions. Louisiana's own Jimmy Majors, nicknamed "Superfly" by Louisiana locals, went undefeated in 11 consecutive matches to win the 8-Ball Open and the 9-ball Pro-Am open. The events took place at Emerald Billiards in New Iberia, Louisiana. The Ozone Billiards US Amateur Open was produced by Dragon Promotions and coincided with The Championship Cloth Pro Classic events. This 7th installment of this amateur extravaganza featured 7 total tournaments in 9-Ball and 8-Ball disciplines, with divisions in Open, Women, Seniors, Mixed Doubles and the Open 9-Ball which allows all players of any level to play. The events were sponsored by Predator, Pool & Billiard Magazine, Aramith Balls, and Emerald Billiards.
Majors played in the Pro Classic 9-Ball event but wasn't able to post a match win. His luck changed when he entered the bar table events. He went undefeated in the 8-Ball to claim the $1000 1st place prize. Then he entered the 9-Ball Pro-Am which featured tougher players such as Richie Richeson, Sylver Ochoa, Gary Abood, and more. Again, he went undefeated with wins over Sylver Ochoa and then Abood in the finals to claim another $2300.
On the 8-Ball ladies side, Florida's Chris Fields came back from the loser's side and defeated defending champion Ashley Kline in back to back double hill thrillers, 4-3, 3-2.
Congrats also goes out to Mickey Elesterion , winner of the 8-Ball Seniors division of the Ozone Billiards US Amateur Open.
