Anthony McGill - winner Shoot-Out 2017

Shoot-Out 2017

Anthony McGill won his second ranking title of the season by beating Xiao Guodong in the final of the Coral Shoot Out.

GlasgowТs 26-year-old McGill once again underlined his talent as he followed up his maiden victory at JulyТs Indian Open by capturing another piece of major silverware. The Scot is the only player other than Mark Selby to win more than one ranking title this season.

After taking a few years to establish himself having turned pro in 2010, McGill has come of age over the past eight months and made the transition from promising up-and-comer to multiple tournament winner.

McGill won seven matches at the Watford Colosseum during an event which was opened up to all 128 tour players and given ranking status for the first time. His ?32,000 pay day makes him likely to be among the top 16 when the seeding cut off for the World Championship falls after the China Open, which would mean an automatic place at the Crucible in April.

He is officially ranked 20th in the world which means that in the seven-year history of the Shoot Out it has never been won a player inside the top 16.
