I might give that place a call next week and see if Buddy does indeed frequent the place. And also ask if he is still giving lessons nowadays. I'll try and keep everyone posted.

Do you realize the creep factor in what you posted.

You aren't far from Sullys and could easily drive down there for a day.

The only creep around here is you. You are always insulting and hijacking threads. I really fail to understand why the Moderators dont do something about you. Your crap is old, and I mean OLD!!!

He's 75 and pretty much retired from a lot of that. He MIGHT give lessons but i wouldn't count on it.

When I lived in Oklahoma City Buddy visited for a few weeks in the lates 1990's and I was fortunate enough to play him about four hours of one pocket for five straight days. He spotted me enough to basically beat me 5/6 games a day for 20 a game. After that week playing with Buddy my game jumped up a few balls. He was extremely gracious and kind with sharing his knowledge and perspective on one pocket.

I will forever cherish those 20 hours of getting to play one pocket with one of the greatest pool players of all time.

From what I have been told from a friend who lives close to him Buddy will play one pocket all day long for 5 bucks a game, so you can get some cheap lessons just by playing him.

To me, Buddy Hall and Ralf Souquet are the living proof that if you play the right way, you can excel for many, many years.

When Buddy Hall won the US Open 9-ball in 1998, he reminded us all that when you play with a technical elegance that has rarely, if ever, been matched in our sport, anything's possible, even if you happen to be 53 years old.

When Ralf Souquet was an automatic qualifier for Team Europe at the Mosconi Cup in 2017 and went 3-1 in his four Mosconi Cup matches, he reminded us that a 49 year old can still play as well as anyone as long as they play the right way.

Those of you who want to pick Buddy's brain are very smart indeed.

"Lessons" were a little more than that when I saw him play at Guys and Dolls in Shreveport in the 70's.

He "gave" lessons to many of the top players in the country while he was in Shreveport. :thumbup:
