Corr Wins in Florida, K.Fisher Earns First Title


Karen Corr got her first Classic Tour victory of the 2005 season by defeating Ga Young Kim in the finals of the Southeast Classic held June 22-26 at the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Fla. Corr had been struggling a bit on the tour this year, finishing in the Top 3 only once prior to her victory in Florida.

Fellow snooker import Kelly Fisher earned her first WPBA Tour title when she defeated Gerda Hofstatter at the West Coast Classic in Alpine, Calif. Fisher, who is in her second year on the Tour, had made a handful of appearances in the television rounds, but her victory at the Viejas Casino was her first WPBA title.

Fisher Still Perfect in 2005

The Duchess of Doom Allison Fisher added another Classic Tour trophy to her collection with a victory at the Great Lakes Classic March 2-6 in Michigan City, Ind. Fisher defeated Tiffany Nelson in the finals to go undefeated in the tournament.

While Fisher took home the trophy, the talk of the tournament was the outstanding performance of Nelson who recorded victories over Karen Corr, Helena Thornfeldt and Vivian Villarreal. It was Nelson’s top finish since earning her full time touring status. Fisher extended her No. 1-ranking over Karen Corr who failed to make the t.v. round.
