Horace became an Australian professional snooker and carom billiards player around 1931, playing competitively until 1957. He won the Billiard Association & Control Council World Championship in 1952, beating Clark McConachy. However, his title is now largely ignored as at the time most professionals played a separate tournament after a disagreement with the governing body. However, although Lindrum was beaten 3 times by Joe Davis, he was the only man considered capable of giving the World Champion a reasonablegame.
