Stan Moody is ready to take on the world, having recently earned a two-year tour card for the professional circuit after winning the WSF Junior Championship in Sydney, Australia. He also made it to the final of the WSF Championship, demonstrating the talent he has and the hard work he has put in. Moody admitted that when it came to the final, he didn't quite have the same motivation as he had for the earlier matches due to his tour card already being secured. Prior to his success in Sydney, he had won English titles at Under-14, 16 and 18 level, and won a match at the 2022 Shoot Out. After his performances, he received an influx of messages from fellow professionals, including Shaun Murphy and Jordan Brown. (Image Source: https://metro.co.uk)
Next season, Moody and Ma Hai Long, the Chinese 19-year-old who beat him in the final of the WSF Championship and also booked himself a spot on the pro tour, will both be on the professional tour.
