Quote from Neil Johnson”After his amazing 147 at just 15ys & 90 days in one of the most prestigious Pro-Am’s in the country, so many people are crediting Sean Maddocks with beating Ronnie O’Sullivan’s youngest record (by 8 days) in an open aged tournament. The relevant forms have now been put in to the Guinness book of records to get it ratified, or not, so we wait and see. Either way it doesn’t change what he’s done or how far he can take his potential. Would be nice to break such a long standing record set by the most talented player in the history of the game all the same.”
