I'm sure you are all aware that Am Worlds is going on as I write on this topic....
Currently, David Wiggins Jr (who is only 15 or 16 years old) is crushing the Advanced field after posting 4 straight 1000+ rated rounds and holds a 13 stroke lead after 5 rounds at -44!
I met David and his father at the 2005 Am Worlds in Flagstaff when he was 10 years old. Is this the next Champ?
Then there is the other "kids" playing in the Junior Divisions.
Richard Wysocki in the < 19 div. has 3 straight 1000+ rated rounds at -30, followed by Grayson Dewey at -20.....
In the <16 div. Seppo Paju and Andrew Coggin are a stroke apart at -25 and -24 with two 1000+ rated rounds!
Then there is the boys <13 div. with Triston Covington and Daichi Inoue at -18 and -12 each with a round just a point or two below 1000!!
Over the past several years the increase in the ratings of the youth movement at Worlds is just mind blowing. These kids just keep getting better and better. Personally, I think this is proof that our sport growing in a very positive direction and is also a result of the quality of the equipment and the level events being given to us.
