Tom Ross began playing and studying pool as a youngster in the 1960’s. In 1978 he began teaching and his goal shifted from a desire to be the best player to becoming the best teacher and sharing his knowledge with as many students as possible to elevate their skills and maximize their enjoyment of our beautiful game. Since then Tom has personally taught or coached over 4,500 students including National and International Champions. Each month he reaches thousands of readers with his columns in Billiards Digest, Cue Times Billiard News, and Professor Cue Ball. His work also appears on the internet at AZ Billiards, Absolute Sports and tomrosspool.com.
