La Belle Province Strikes Again on Joss Tour

It could be called a Quebec invasion of sorts on the Joss Tour, as there has been a wave of French Canadian players crossing the border and finding success. Within the last year Danny Hewitt has won back to back stops on the tour and Semi-Pro Dany Normandin finished third at the prestigious Turing Stone Classic. Alain Parent had a break through at the most recent Turning Stone Classic securing wins over Jayson Shaw and Huiji See.

Joining Parent and Hewitt this past weekend at Sharpshooters Billiards and Sports Bar in Amsterdam, NY was Martin Daigle. Daigle, who hails from Quebec City, is another perfect example of the stable of talent in Quebec. As he is perhaps lesser known across the border but a well known commodity in his home province and across Canada.

46 players showed up to play this event and as many as 10 professionals were in the field despite the U.S. Open being played at the same time. Daigle played flawless this entire event including an impressive 9-2 win in the hot-seat match against frequent winner on the Joss Tour, Ron Casanzio.

Casanzio fought his way back in the losers side final to get another chance at Daigle. However Daigle was too much on this day, securing another win 9-6  and taking home the $1050 top prize. Parent finished in 5th place and Hewitt finised 4th respectively. The gang will be at Premium Billiards in Syracuse this upcoming weekend at the next Joss Tour stopCue Sport Nation will have that update as well.
