NEWS:  Yow won Third - ESPN Trick Shot Magic 2009!

Greetings, and thank you for visiting my site. Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Eric "The Preacher" Yow! I consider myself to be 3-dimensional. I have a Calling, a Career, and a Craft. I am a preacher for the Chapel Hill Church of Christ (White Bluff TN), I have graduated from the University of Memphis School of Law and am a practicing Attorney at The Goble Law Firm in Clarksville, Tennessee, and I am a Professional Artistic Poolplayer (WPA World Rank #4, 2008 ESPN Trick Shot Magic 3rd Place, WPA Masse World Champion, WPA Prop/Novelty World Champion, 2007 Masters Jump Champion, 2008 Masters Bank/Kick Champion). The Lord has blessed me considerably and I fully intend to use my talents to His glory. God, through the apostle Paul, has told us that, "Whatever you do in word or deed, do ALL in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father." (Colossians 3:17) I hope that my success brings not praise to me, but praise to the God that has blessed me!

On this site you'll find a plethora of artistic shots that I shoot in both professional competitions and my exhibition, "Eric Yow's Trick Shot Madness - An Artistic Pool Show ." I you are interested in hosting my exhibition, you will not be disappointed in the slightest. Email me for rates and availability. I perform virtually anywhere there's a table including schools, pool halls, tournament venues, churches, and private parties. Now, I can even take my pool table to you!

The Lord has blessed me with the determination and ability to become something great. Without Him, I would be nothing. But in my faith, He has given me more success than I could’ve asked for! (Joshua 1:7-9) Since He has blessed me so, I have taken it upon me to show the world His gifts! Most recently, I have competed and obtained 3rd at the most prestigious trick shot event in the world, ESPN "Trick Shot Magic"! Feel free to browse the site and email me if you have any questions or comments. I pray the Lord blesses you, and finds you grateful. (Please visit my current sponsors for all your billiard needs.)

NEWS: Yow just took 2nd at the 2008 Masters Artistic Pool Championship! Overcoming greats such as Bruce Barthelette and Andy Segal, Yow went on to face Mark Dimick for the finals. Having come from behind by 8 points against Bruce and 17 points against Andy, his 16 point deficit behind Mark was nothing scary. Yow came from behind, playing like the champ that he is, and took the lead, holding it until the last shot. Mark picked a tough shot and made it, taking the lead. Yow stepped up to shoot it, to regain the lead and the title, but barely missed! Congrats to Mark and Yow for fantastic victories. Yow also won the medal for Bank/Kick shots. The best part of the tournament, Yow said, was during his 5 minute warmup before the finals match. Mark is fantastic at wingshots so Yow practiced one and hit it. He rolled another, looked back at Mark, and said "what's up now, Mark?!" as he shot it on the fly - and made it! Awesome. Below are some of the videos of the event.

ESPN2, August 7th, 2007 - "3-Cushion Grandmaster" aired at 7:00 pm! UPDATE: I hope you got to see the show, it was awesome! Praise the Lord for such a unique and beautiful opportunity to show how He has blessed me! The show will air again on October 14th on ESPN (check your local listings).

Watch Eric "The Preacher" Yow make his ESPN debut against Semih Sayginer, the best in the world, on a BILLIARD table! Semih Sayginer, "The Turkish Prince," is phenomenal on the billiard table. When he walks to a table, jaws drop. Sayginer is simply amazing at what he does! In "3-Cushion Grandmaster," Sayginer and I perform a series of stroke shots, of our own choice, directed only by a certain criterion for each shot, to be judged by a panel of celebrity judges (Ivan Lee of Simonis, Jeanette "The Black Widow," and Bob Jewett, president of the USBA). For instance, one of the 5 shots is called "Superdraw," where our shots were required to make a billiard point using a maximum draw stroke. Then, after we have each completed our 5-shot program, we were given one last chance to impress the judges with a "Finale" shot. This is a show you simply will NOT want to miss! Not only is it my ESPN debut, but it is the first time 3-Cushion Billiards has ever been on a major television network. Show your support and tell ESPN that you want MORE 3-Cushion Billiards! (Be sure and check out these Pictures from "3 Cushion Grandmaster".

NEW PAGE: Yow's Masse Instruction - Articles featured in Professor Q Ball's National Pool and 3-Cushion News are now available here on my Masse Instruction Page. Also, I am making myself available for those who desire master level instruction on Masse and Jump. I am more than qualified, as I am WPA Masse World Champion and APTSA Masters Jump Champion. You will not be disappointed. Email Yow! for rates and availability. See, God has blessed me with a gift. I plan to be a good steward of that gift, sharing it with others to the best of my ability.

NEW VIDEO: Yow and Mike Massey spent some time in New York City at Carom Cafe working with Miguel Torres in preparation for "3-Cushion Grandmaster." Check out this promotional video highlighting some of the 3-cushion billiard stroke shots! Each of the shots are valid points as if played in a 3-cushion billiard match! Awesome. Thanks again, Miguel!

MASSE INSANITY: It's madness, absolute insanity...Masse Insanity! After a recent acquisition of a Dennis Dieckman Masse Cue, aka "Magic Wand", I decided to put together a video of the craziest masse shots ever seen together in one place. Well, friends, I'll let you be the judge of whether or not I was successful in doing so. It is my hope that this particular video changes the way the world looks at Artistic Pool. Not a single shot in this video is a set-up shot, nor a hanger. I am proud to say that the Lord has given me the diligence and aspiration to accomplish great things in this sport. I believe this video is a landmark for me as a player. I genuinely hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it. Right Click, Save As
