I'm 19 so almost out of the junior definition but I'm around 450ft on any day.

I know a 13yr that can throw just as far and sometimes farther than me. At Am worlds he threw 400ft in the distance competition. He can throw much further than that though.

A junior I regularly play with is 15 and easily pushes past 400, probably into 420 territory on flat ground with a good rip.

I should pace out my six year old's throws sometimes. He can get decent distance with e.g. a polecat. Not 175, certainly, but decent distance.

I guess <=10 is the youngest division. And, does that ever get offered except at e.g. AM Worlds?

I play casually on a somewhat regular basis. When the local country club was opened for practice rounds in preparation for the amateur worlds event this year, my group was definitely on the course.

While I cannot say for sure, I think I saw the kid who won the 13 and under division play through on us. We watched him drive a few holes and were very impressed. It seemed like he lost control when he tried to bomb, but could throw in the 275' range with good accuracy. This is a guesstimate.

I would say I have played a round with middle school aged kids somewhere around 15-20 times. Quite a few guys my age have kids in this range. Never have I seen anything the likes of what that kid was doing on the country club course.
