Player of the Week
The Loft Again The latest session of the Phoenix Tour was sponsored by the Loft Again on Cave Creek Road in Phoenix.

It encompassed 33 events over a three month stretch and featured 81 dedicated players battling it out for points and prizes across Phoenix's three main tournament venues: Duke's Sports bar in Scottsdale, Stinger's Sports Bar in Peoria, and the Loft Again. When the dust settled, the defending tour champion, Bryan Hendricks, emerged once again as the overall champion with a record 318 points and held onto the coveted "Grand Champion" jacket. Bob Duncan topped all rookie players with a record 281 points - finishing 2nd overall and claiming the "Rookie Champion" jacket. The four additional tour prizes were nearly all scooped by Bryan and Bob as well, with the exception of veteran pro Nick Bourdos staking a claim to the "King of Duke's" title.
Bryan Hendricks
Overall Champion, Sharpshooter, King of Stinger's

The defending tour champion came out on the top of the heap again in the second rendition of the valley wide points race. He outlasted 80 contenders for the coveted championship jacket, scoring a record 318 points and racking up 17 first place finishes along the way.

In addition to winning the overall championship, Bryan also claimed the Sharpshooter (highest average score) and King of Stinger's titles.
Bob Duncan
Rookie Champion, King of the Loft

Bob Duncan did not only win this session's rookie championship jacket in impressive fashion (registering a scorching 102 point margin over the next highest placing rookie), but nearly claimed the overall title as well, landing in 2nd place on the chart - just 37 points shy of two time champion Bryan Hendricks.

Bob also took home the King of the Loft title, placing in 7 of 11 appearances at the tour sponsor's venue.
Nick Bourdos
King of Duke's

Veteran pro Nick Bourdos laid claim to the King of Duke's title, winning first place in 10 of 12 appearances at the venue, without ever finishing out of the money.
