||Nigel Bond finally won a ranking title, the
1996 British Open, in his fourth final. He has
won a total of five professional titles, including the
1997 Regal Scottish Masters.
Nigel has done some amazing comebacks in his career. In the first round of the
1994 World Championship, he was 9-2 down to Cliff
Thorburn, but eventually won it 10-9! The match was very long, going on until 2 am.
In the final of the 1996 British Open, John Higgins was leading
69-0 in the deciding frame. Bond got the snooker he required and went on to win the frame, the
match and his first ranking title!
In 2011 he won the inaugural Caesarscasino.com Snooker Shoot-Out.
