A 15 Year Old is in the US Open



Coming from a state that had Tad Fujikawa and Michelle Wie be golf prodigies, I'm always interested in these stories.

It should be great to watch this guy tee up against his idols.

Have you seen the documentary The Short Game? It's about young golfers and it's well done and available on Netflix. I'm curious about this year's u.s. open as it's in my home state for a nice change.

Yes, I saw it on cable, the Esquire network. They also had a series about kids in karting (Kart Life) and also junior football (Friday Night Tykes). Pretty much the same, parents and kids acting like adults. Very little about the joy of the sport.

Wasn't Tiger in it when he was fifteen?

Kids today....getting to live out there dream at 15. Go Cole Hammer!

Air&Road not sure if Tiger played in the US Open at that age...check Wikipedia..but he was winning U.S. Amateurs. Today, he's 3 over and struggling like..... well just another golfer.

Man, he's tied at 91st position after the 1st round. Only the top 60 after two rounds advance to Saturday.
