Parsons has his Tour Card!

Riley Parsons is another youngster that made it through Q-School this year. At the age of just 19 he has proudly earned his place on the professional tour. He had a tough and very experienced opponent and found himself 3-2 down against Peter Lines but Riley wasn’t ready to give up his dream and battled back to win 4-3 in the final round of Event 2. 

Unfortunately Riley didn’t qualify for the Riga Masters losing 4-2 to Lukas Kleckers and lost 6-4 to Shaun Murphy in the International Championship qualifier. Riley put up a fight and gave the former World Champion a good game with breaks of 81, 81 and 78 to keep the match close but it was ‘The Magician’ that pocketed the win.

It’s great to see these youngsters coming through and getting what they’ve worked so hard for- their tour card. Good luck Riley for the rest of the season.
