Ryan earns his place on the IPA Tour

What a fantastic performance today by Ryan Scott in the first NIPA 2019 IPA Tour (Belfast Leg) Qualifier. The event was held in the Q. Club, Larne and from a field of 31 the Larne man fought his way to the Final where he faced Antrim's Roger Smyth. But just as in his Semi Final Ryan recovered from 0-2 down fighting back to register a 5-3 win.

With his win he secures a place in both the IPA Amateur event and the IPA Open event when the Tour comes to Belfast in February 2019.

It's a great reward for Ryan as he puts in many, many hours of practice, play and miles into the game he loves.
