This past weekend, Rocky Carson came from two games down in the finals of the 2016 Florida Pro-Am to win his third tournament of the season on the International Racquetball Tour (IRT). Currently the No. 2 player in the world on the IRT’s rankings list, Carson’s win in the Sunshine State was his 24th career title.

Rocky has now won 486 matches in IRT tournaments, placing him just six matches behind reaching the Top Three in the history of men’s professional racquetball. At the Florida event, Carson cruised into finals with three easy wins. However, in the Championship Match found himself in a quick two game hole before battling back to win 5-11, 7-11, 11-8, 11-4 & 11-1.

With just two events remaining on the 2015-16 IRT season, Carson could end the season atop the rankings with two more tournament wins. He has already cemented another Top 5 year-end ranking, which will be his 10th consecutive.

The IRT next takes the court in mid-May in Portland, Oregon and closes out the season at the end of the month in Reseda, California.
