Queenstown pool player Simon Singleton has come back from the Whanganui Open as champion.
Singleton won all seven of his games at the two-day tournament last weekend to win his first title and the $1000 prize.
He got his revenge on Hawkes Bay's Bayden Jackson, who beat him last year in the final of the New Zealand open in Auckland.
The match was hard-fought, but Singleton eventually prevailed. His next big competition will be in Levin at the end of next month.
