Charlie Bryant, known in the billiard community as ‘Hillbilly’ for his thick accent, has been playing pool since the age of 5, when his daddy had him pushing a crate around the table in the family pool hall. In 2004, Charlie hit the professional tour and immediately won his first major title as the Glass City Open Champion. With several other top finishes on the National scene, he took his place at #4 on the Billiard Digest Power Index and sat as high as #6 on the UPA professional players ranking list.
Known for his monstrous break, ultra accurate kicking systems and his ability to understand the mechanics of the game, the Hillbilly turned scholar. With the help of a good friend, Charlie put his simple approach to the individual skills of billiards on paper and the industry’s first ‘text book’ was born.
After several years of consistently finishing in the top 12 on the Professional Men’s Points list, Mr. Bryant has proven he is a champion. His eyes have now shifted to a new purpose. Ambassador to the Sport is a role the big Christian Man was born to fulfill. With his knowledge of the game, his southern hospitality, his skill as an instructor and his overwhelming concern for the welfare of the people who share his passion; Charlie ‘Hillbilly’ Bryant has chosen to spend the rest of his career doing his part to help the game that helped him find himself.
