Hello, my name is Jason Lynch, but you may know me as “The Michigan Kid”. I am 35 years old and the father of an amazing 11 year old daughter Grace. I started playing pool on my Dad’s old Valley pool table when I was 6 years old. I grew to love the game and at 16 years old I knew I wanted to be a professional player.
I started playing in league in the mid 90’s in the VNEA. I have played in the ACS, the APA and the VNEA where I am / have been one of the top players in my area.
In 2004, my dreams of becoming a pro were about to come to fruition. I was working with the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in Arenac County, Michigan. I decided I would do a marathon speed pool attempt to raise funds for the Cancer Society. The church I was a member of procured pledges and we raised about $1200.00, and I pocketed 11,100 balls in 24 hours in the process. I was reading the forum on Tom Rossman’s (Dr.Cue) website and decided to post about our event and asked if there was any out of the ordinary tournaments going on. Tom called my house about 1-2 weeks later and invited me to the 2004 Northeastern Open held at Shooter’s Billiards in Southington, CT. I placed 13th out of 15th. When I was 16 years old I thought I would be a pro 8 ball or 9 ball player but it turned out I was destined to be a performer and Trickshot artist. In the past year I have endorsed a new pool table that is being sold in Sears, I went to Africa with Gospel Trickshot Ministries Inc. and I am blessed to have McDermott Cues that are building my own cue line. I hope to continue my success in Artistic pool and sports ministry.
I am currently Ranked 13th in the World by the World Pool Association. I could not do what I do without my sponsors. McDermott Cues, Thomas-Aaron Billiards, Executive Billiards (Delta-13 rack), Gospel Trickshot Ministries Inc. and Inside Pool Magazine.
