Best advice he received from someone:
"If you can travel 1000 miles to play pool and watch your opponent sink a lucky 9 at hill-hill and still smile about it, then you can overcome anything the game throws at you."
In 2007 professional billiards player Jason "The Lone Wolf" Lawrence decided to embark on a personal journey towards fulfilling his destiny. Having played cue sports for over 20 years, Jason switched disciplines from snooker to pool billiards. Instinctively Jason found pool billiards easier to master at a professional/amateur level winning several North England amateur leagues and competitions along the way.
Jason of English heart and Jamaican blood now plays on the gruelling Euro Tour Series encountering multiple world and national champions from all corners of the European continent. But don't be fooled, Jamaica's No.1 is coming for you!
Being appointed McDermott Cue's first European Product Developer is a realization of destiny and an inspiration in life. Our appreciation in fine art craftsmanship shows the importance of dynamic aesthetics, charismatic styling and the ultimate playing pleasure.
"In our lives product design is at the heart of everything we do. I will be promoting pool billiards in Britain and I am working with McDermott Cue to further develop their innovative products for a tailored European market."
My eclectic vision of business alliance will bring prosperity, fortune and luck to the pool athlete who is prepared to strive valiantly and seize their opportunity.
Lawrence is now back in the snooker game as a professional WPBSA Snooker coach and teacher. More information can be found at wpbsacoach.com.
