The first round of the Ugu Snooker League at Margate Country Club last week proved to be exciting for all the players including newcomer Jaco Buitendag (pictured).
A former pool player, Buitendag has decided to give up pool for the much more popular sport of snooker.
He excelled in pool, reaching the last 16 in the South African singles championship, and has now set his sights on achieving a lot of success in snooker.
Buitendag encourages other pool players to take up the awesome sport of snooker.
