The kids have done it. BATHURST has gone through the toughest of roads to become team USA 2 for the 2011 Bermuda Bowl. After battling through MAHAFFEY , NICKELL , WOLFSON, and DIAMOND , there is no doubt that they have earned their right to compete for World Championship glory. For the first time in recent history all 6 of the U.S. team members are under 40 : ERROR: UNKNOWN USER "joseph-grue" IN INTERNAL PROFILE LINK. Try username, email, or FIRSTNAME LASTNAME. - 29, Kevin Bathurst - 32, John Hurd - 31, Joel Wooldridge - 31, Dan Zagorin - 39, and Justin Lall - 24. It wasn't just the quality of their opponents, but the large margin of their victories that impressed. If the Spring Nationals was not evidence enough that this generation of players is here to stay, then let the bridge world be aware... they are headed to Veldhoven on a mission. Congratulations to them on a performance for the ages.
