Happy birthday, Joe Davis.

You may have left us, but you will always be where ever Snooker is played.

Another great player that I just became aware of having the same birthdate....
..Clark McConachy

Just one statistic demonstrates his durability and his dominance: he was the New Zealand professional billiards champion from 1914 until his death in 1980.

He was world billiards champion from 1951 to 1968 and he claimed world records and many break feats during his long career.

His snooker feats included more than 300 century breaks and the maximum 147 in 1951.

Another indication of his enduring skill was that he was a finalist in the world snooker championships in 1932 and again in 1952.

He was the second player to achieve the cueist’s ultimate — 1000 in billiards and 147 in snooker.

Among the tributes paid to McConachy was one in The Times in London: “Lindrum, Davis, McConachy and Tom Newman were so sure of shot in compiling their mammoth breaks that ordinary members of the public could not identify with their efforts.”


Lionize your game.
