DBJ is only 13 (may have just turned 14?) and has great potential out of Portland, Oregon. He has a very supportive family and community behind him. His attitude/temperament about the game is solid, and he's been improving pretty quickly as of late. His rating is 950 right now, but he's working through some growing pains with consistency. With his attitude and character, I fully expect him emerge a 1000 rated golfer by age 16.

He also threw a 492' drive at a D-Comp a few weeks ago (flat ground, no wind).

Definitely a youngster to keep an eye on.

A long time ago I was able to beat him in tournaments.


A long time ago.





What sucks is that he's a really nice kid so it's hard to hate him.

i have a lot of confidence in my buddy zach longeill. a couple more years at this and im sure he will be 1000 rated. hes going to am worlds next year, so we'll see how he does under the bigger spot light. he did great this year at the vibrAM. once those rounds are counted for, his rating should jump a good bit. currently 12. playing for 2 year i believe. he seems to keep up with whatever level players he is throwing with, so if he would just step up in divisions, i feel his game would escalate further.http://www.pdga.com/player_stats/95108/2013
I was looking through this thread just to see if Zach was mentioned. Only 12 and won Intermediate in an A-tier. Rated almost 900 which will def go up on next update. Also very composed for someone so young, definitely handles himself better than a lot of kids at tournaments.

I think that having a Forehand is an essential weapon especially in the pro ranks. This is the area that I have struggled with since I've begun. The past few weeks I have been working very hard on my forehand. I can almost get it over 300 ft., but I find that I can throw it pretty accurately.

newer players have no prejudice against using both types of shots...I've seen it on my home course.....in a strange twist some of these players can hit the backhand hyzer and then the flick hyzer so most holes are covered but occasionally theres an anny tunnel that they just cannot seem to understand how to play lol

I am loving all of these names and it will be interesting to see which of them emerges

Where and who is SEARCHINGFORDISTANCE in this convo?

Nice Austin. Being a well rounded player never hurt anyone these days.

Keep up the good work.

Did some forehander just destroy the course you designed?

Will you lose all respect for me when I bust out a left handed backhand to avoid a touch anny?
