Talented younger players....15 and under.

I know there has been a lot of talk about who may be the best junior player. However this usually involves 16-18 year olds mostly, people who can drive and are generally much larger than some of the 15 and under players who have a lot of potential. This gives a big advantage to older kids, because they are able to drive to the course or field to practice. So, who in your area has the most potential? What young players beat up on the advanced and open guys? Who has a good work ethic that you think may succeed? Keep it to 15 and under for the most part please

Zane letts in the dfw is pretty bad ass. He's only 12 and can crush it out to 350 or so. Once he gets his putting down he will be beating most advanced players around here. He looks like a good putter just throws to hard and ends up three putting.

He's got game and I hope he sticks with it because he will be kicking everybody's ass in the next couple years.

I'll be playing in a tournament in the beginning of August with 3 of the best younger players out there who will all be in the Open division with me.
Triston Covington who is under 18 and 992 rated.
Nicholas Duran in the 970s who won the tournament in Open last year and is the current 15 and under world champ.
Anthony Barela in the 970s as well who is the 13 and under world champ.

My goal for the tournament is to beat all of them. It will definitely take a little work.

Finlay Buchanan-Jacobs PDGA #55953

Took 3rd place in Advanced yesterday at the Stafford Open. Shot a 952 and a 959 rated rounds. I think he's only 13. He's improving soo fast. It's gonna be crazy to see what he can do in a couple years. I honestly see him playing open (and winning tourneys) by the time he can start driving himself to tournaments.

There was a young girl in Japan (I think she was 9 or 10) who could throw 350 accurately and had a deadly putt inside 40 feet. Paige Pierce filmed her playing a few holes but I don't think she's posted the video yet. That girl is insanely good.

I feel like I've seen videos of her. 4 foot 10 real small right? Does she have a PDGA number?

Those words don't even make sense together. I'd love to see that video.
