Children's tournament just completed

Charlotte DGC held their 2nd annual Children's Tournament today and had a fantastic turn out (80 kids, 2 rounds of DG; all kids and parents fed; prizes galore). 6 age divisions for both boys and girls--6 yr olds and under, 7-8 yr olds, 9-10 yrs (ten girls in this age division), 11-12 yr olds, 13-14 yr olds, and 15-17 yr olds. Hottest round was by a 14-yr old boy that shot a 38! Another notable was a Wysocki win (Zach, Ricky's younger brother and caddy during the USDGC, won the 7-8 yr old boys).

Is there any better way of developing the sport?

Sponsors really stepped up--Innova in a big way (player pack and a Traveler basket for a CTP), REI with $500 of merchandise, PDGA with $500 of merch and youth memberships, PIAS with a Discatcher basket (ring-of-fire), and many other sponsors. Kids sell in sponsorships!

Forgot to mention Steve's leadership and passion of this event; also need to mention at least another 15 volunteers as well as many disc golfing parents.

It occurred to me that the 14-year old kid (Joe Painter) shot a -16. So he shot more than his age under par. This wasn't PDGA sanctioned, but it's still amazing. He's rated about 930 and he shot what I figure to be in the 1040 range.

Did Wiggins ever shoot his age under par in a PDGA tourney? Or any other hotshot (Steve Rico, etc.)?
