Willie Thorne on twitter has vowed to play on the Seniors Tour this season after undergoing lens replacement surgery in Bristol. After struggling with poor sight for years, the legendary snooker player and commentator is finally enjoying clearer vision as the surgery was succesful.
In the previous season Willie had entered some Seniors events but it was obvious how badly he was struggling. Hopefully the surgery will make a telling difference and allow him to compete properly and enjoy his snooker again.
All the best Willie!
