It’s true. I can only speak about what I have seen with my own eyes, when we lived in Dallas, Southern California, Stockholm Sweden, and now in Seattle. My son is/was a good, but not amazing player. At 14 he could beat any 4.5 in a 60 mile area. I talked some of the top 4.5’s around here into playing with him (he’s 17 now) and they cannot win games. When was the last time you actually witnessed a top 16 year old playing a 4.5?
