Yes. The whole of the qualifiers were played in September 1992, when O'Sullivan was still only 16.

Danny Fowler had 7 months to contemplate his match with Stephen Hendry and he lost the first session 9-0!

Nope, nothing to do with winning their first title in Aus!

Clue: They are the only three to have done two of something (In Bingham's case you could say three)
