Scott Donaldson claims his first pro title in 2020…

The 25-year-old rising Scottish snooker star lands the 2020 Championship League title.

Two Scots battled in the final, but it was youth that prevailed over the experienced Graeme Dott…(photo screenshot from World Snooker Tour facebook…

He defeated former 2006 World Champion Graeme Dott in the final and tweeted:

The Championship League has been previously held by the likes of Judd Trump, a three-time winner, Martin Gould, a two-time winner, and Joe Perry, who won the inaugural event in 2008.

Scot John Higgins has also won two CL titles.

In 2020, Judd Trump made his 700th century during the event. Watch below…


Donaldson bagged 10K and also spots a place in the 2020 Champion of Champions in November.

Although the Championship League is not a ranking event, there are still tons of future bonuses for Donaldson on offer.

Winning a title breeds confidence and although the Scot has managed to get to semi-finals of ranking events in the past, winning a title can only give the talented young Scot the confidence to progress further and claim an elusive ranking title.

Like Michael Holt winning the Shootout (a ranking event but previously wasn’t), this might propel Donaldson into greater things.

We’ll see.

Well done Scott.
