Pinhey Doubles-Up

Gold Waistcoat Masters Winner - Haydon Pinhey 2015-16
Gold Waistcoat Masters Winner – Haydon Pinhey 2015-16 with Sponsor Matt Hulatt M.J.H. Paving Ltd.

Haydon Pinhey the Gold Waistcoat Tour Champion 2016 is also the Gold Waistcoat Masters Champion 2016. A fantastic achievement that will take some matching. One man that could, is the prolific break builder Eddie Manning, Eddie came a very close second to Haydon in both the Gold Waistcoat Tour and Gold Waistcoat Masters this season. If he can find the time to enter enough tour events next season, whilst also attending Professional Tour events, he has got to be one of the favourites.

Thanks to Matt Hulatt of M.J.H. Paving for sponsoring the event and Galaxy Centre for playing hosts.

Gold Waistcoat Tour Overall Winner - Haydon Pinhey 2015-16
Haydon Pinhey – Gold Tour Champion 2015-16

Haydon Pinhey from Plymouth is the 2016 overall WEBSF Gold Waistcoat Snooker Tour Champion. After great efforts from Eddie Manning and Andy Symons, Haydon was declared champion. This win was one of the closest on record and had to go to count-back when Eddie won the final event. Both players finished on 252 points. However, Haydon took the title by virtue of winning two events to Eddie’s one. Counting back through, just one frame would have reversed the result…..a valiant effort by the break building machine Eddie Manning. Eddiecould yet square the circle if both players get through to the final of the Gold Masters in May. This is where the top 16 ranked players from the tour are invited to compete in a knock-out tournament for £1320 prize money. The event is sponsored by MJH Paving Ltd. and hosted by The Galaxy Centre, Torquay.  Select Gold Waistcoat to see the results for the tour.
