"Playing pocket billiards is not about gambling. It's about competitive spirit, a desire for excellence, and having fun!" ~~ Scott Lee .

Scott Lee, pool instructor extraordinaire, has passed away. He had a brief battle with cancer. He was always kind to me in our exchanges. He will be missed by so many, I know. May he rest in eternal peace.

Scott Lee has been playing pocket billiards for more than 40 years, and teaching professionally since 1977. He has been a PBIA Certified Instructor since the inception of the program. Beginning in 1995, striving to change the image of pool, Scott has toured 8-9 months of the year, with his Traveling College of Billiard Knowledge shows, entertaining and teaching audiences at colleges, universities, military bases and poolrooms everywhere! -Jennie Ann

Scott and I exchanged many private messages over the last year or so. 😢 He was always helpful and I’m sure that during a single 1:1 in-person lesson I would have learned more than I can learn on my own in an entire year. I suppose I waited too long to engage him in a lesson.

Thanks for posting this notice as sad as it is. RIP Scott.

Terrible news. He chose a tough a path in life, traveling from place to place. It must not have been easy for him often times over the years. I don't know anyone who was more passionate about teaching pool than Scott was; and from what I've read in people's accounts of meeting him over the years, he touched a lot of people's lives. Deepest sympathies to his family and close friends.

What a loss to the small group of Professional Instructors.
Scott was the first instructor I contacted a few years after my mentor passed. Several years later we met for a tune up and Q&A session.
Both times he gave the lesson on a carom table. Didn't care about pocketing balls, just strengthening fundamentals. Learned a lot from Scott.
Lessons were hours long, lots of fun, but serious none the less.

We had a tentative 3rd for when he was in range. Guess I'll have to wait a while for that one.

RIP Scott

No one put more energy into a lesson than Scott. I am so sorry to read this.

" An accurate and repeatable stroke"

RIP Scott
