Patrick Wallace was a man in a hurry at the Pukka Pies UK Championship qualifiers today.
The former Crucible quarter-finalist whitewashed Mark Boyle 9-0, rounding off with breaks of 96 and 97.
Such a scoreline is relatively rare these days due to the highly competitive standard of play seen in Prestatyn.
Wallace's reward is a second round meeting with John Parrott, the 1991 UK champion.
Meanwhile, Wallace's fellow Northern Irishman Jordan Brown, also a Snooker Scene columnist, narrowly missed out on a new world record.
He won a frame 97-87 against Lee Spick. The aggregate score of 184 is just one fewer than the 185 set between Sean Storey and Graham Cripsey in the qualifiers for the 1992 Asian Open.
You're right, I should get out more.
