If you were paying attention to this weekend’s Asia Open you would have noticed a player with a PDGA number in the six digits and no player rating take down the win in Open over established pros such as James Conrad, Philo Brathwaite, Nate Perkins, and Manabu Kajiyama.

Terry Miller, the Disc Golf Guy, was onsite and shared some more info on the 22-year-old Chen, including the Taiwanese player’s history in the sport, past tournament experience, and playing style.

Big takeaways: he’s a known talent in the area, he’s got big distance, and this was no fluke.
