Danny Huneycutt (Lexington, NC) has solidified his position as North America’s top-ranked player. He moves to #15 on the world ranking list after another fine performance at the Resort at the Mountain Invitational. He made a statement early by taking a game from the world’s top-ranked player, Reg Bamford. He also won a game against #6 Aaron Westerby (NZ), and twice beat #5 David Maugham. He compiled a 10-8 record and finished fifth in the elite ten-player field, narrowly missing — by two net points — the third-place playoff match.
