Video: 17-Month-Old Golf Prodigy

Tip of the cap to Chris Chase for spotting this video of a 17-year-old golf prodigy who appears to make solid contact as a righty or a lefty. He's a bit steep at times, but not wipey at least!

Sweet. As long as he doesn't have a Twitter account set up with a nickname targeting an equipment company and is not dressed like the US Amateur champion.
17 month old

too much violence for me...

He's a lefty for sure, he places the balls so he hits left. Gonna be a PGA pro one day.
01.25.2013 | Unregistered CommenterLD
Somebody please give the boy a left handed club
01.25.2013 | Unregistered CommenterRafa
I didn't know Moe Norman was so short.
My two-year-old has the same plastic clubs ... not easy to make that kind of contact. The kid's good.

WOW, but I wonder if a hockey stick may be his future! Amazing hand to eye.
01.25.2013 | Unregistered Commenterdigsouth
Amazing -- the kid actually hits down on the ball instinctively using a cross-handed grip and a right handed golf club. Keep Foley away from him and you've got a future Phil.

Love all the positive posts! RLL....made me snort coffee....good stuff
01.25.2013 | Unregistered Commenterdigsouth
AMAZING!!!!
01.25.2013 | Unregistered Commenterhandbraketurn
Tremendous supination at the bottom...
01.25.2013 | Unregistered CommenterPHK
He really does hit it amazingly solid and with the back of the club! Think about that, sweet spot probably smaller than a T945 Eye-O-Matic!

Chop.....
He looks like a mini golfing samurai...lol how he's already kinda posing on his short follow thru. Like they say; His Future is ahead of him.
