Lee Walker (born 11 February 1976) is a Welsh professional snooker player. He is an official WPBSA coach.[4]

Career[edit]

Walker reached the quarter-finals of the World Championship in 1997, with victories over Dave Harold 10–7 and Alan McManus 13–10, before he lost 13–8 to Alain Robidoux. However he never followed up on this result, although he did reach the last 16 of the same tournament in 2004 with a 10–7 win over Stephen Lee in the last 32, losing 13–5 to David Gray in the last 16. He dropped off the Main Tour after the 2005–2006 season, but returned a year later after a strong campaign on the Pontin’s International Open Series, from which the top 8 finishers gain Main Tour places. However he dropped off again at the end of the season. Walker did however return to the tour in 2014 as he won a 2 year tour card by reaching the semi final stage of the second event of the 2014 Q School.
