DIRECTOR OF COACHING AND PABSA AMBASSADOR
From Victoria in British Columbia, Canada, Cliff Thorburn brings an unrivaled level of experience and knowledge to the PABSA team. As the 1980 World Champion and the 1983, 1985 and 1986 Masters Champion, Cliff has won a total of two ranking events and eighteen invitational events. Having played on the professional snooker tour from 1973 until 1996, Thorburn is also well known for one of snookers most famous moments when he made the first 147 break at The Crucible Theatre in the 1983 World Championships playing in the second round. In doing so he became the first player in World Championship history to make a 147 break since the championship began in 1927. It was another nine years before another was made at The Crucible Theatre. As Director of Coaching and PABSA Ambassador, Thorburn hopes to help the growth and development of players from all areas of the PABSA region to find the stars of the future and budding cue sport enthusiasts.
