What do all these top finishes mean for young Ricky === 2012 Player of the Year!
Hard to fathom and probably will NEVER be repeated. Three coveted titles in as many years for the young smiling kid from O-HI-O.
– Amateur World Champ
– PDGA Rookie of the Year
– PDGA Player of the Year
Most players can only dream of just coming close to one of those titles. But you EARNED all three!
2013 brought many more wins and my first trip overseas. What else but a WIN in Finland on your first time out of the US, Surprise? Nope. This is what dedication, commitment, hard work, humility, and faith result in.
Finally here you are— 2014
You’ve WON 5 out of the 10 tourneys so far came in second in three more and now you’re on your first trip to Japan.
Turning 21 years old on the other side of the world. So far away but we could not be any prouder of the fine young man you’ve become. Keep the faith Rick and don’t forget to thank God for the amazing capacity that he has blessed you with. You work so hard to hone your skills and to maintain your outstanding attitude, we can only see great things for your future.
