More young players are winning these days in my opinion due to familiarity to the equipment and balls. The Pro V1 came out in 2002 and that changed the game. The first balls these young guys played in junior golf was longer and straighter than the balls guys in their late 30’s or 40’s had to learn and hone their games. Their bodies and games were designed to hit the ball far and not have to worry as much about keeping the ball from spinning off line. Junior development leads to long term patterns. These young guys’ games are built for the modern ball and drivers.
