OK - so I wanted Tommy Jones to win and still think he deserved it - but when I take a look at what Walter Ray Williams, Jr. did this year - I have to say I'm impressed:
Highlights of Williams’ 2005-06 season include:
• Equaled Earl Anthony for most career Tour titles when he won his 41st title in the 2006 Denny's World Championship.
• Won his seventh career Major Title (Denny’s World Championship), one shy of Anthony's record eight Majors.
• Set a Tour record by going a perfect 475-475 on match play single-pin conversion attempts.
• Led the Tour in match play spare percentage (87.37), match play average (230.77) and match game win percentage (99-69, .589).
• His $183,500 in season earnings ranked fourth on Tour and marked the 12th time in the last 13 seasons he went over the $100,000 mark.
• His 223.65 season average ranked third on Tour, marking the 16th consecutive season he finished in the top eight in average.
• Made three championship round appearances, the 20th consecutive season he's made at least three finals.
All these stats are amazing but come on 475 for 475 on single pin conversions. They don't call him dead eye for nothin'
Congrats Walter Ray
