20 in their 20's
Youth isn't always wasted on the young these superstars in waiting are making the most of their considerable talents
Adam Scott had just won the EDS Byron Nelson Championship in late April when he was asked to assess the progress of the current group of 20-something golfers.
"I think everyone is living up to potential," Scott said. "You've got to be careful not to get potential distorted with achievements of Tiger in his 20s, and I think everyone can easily do that, including ourselves. You know, when I turned pro, I thought, yeah, I'll just go out and challenge Tiger (laughter), and it just doesn't happen, unfortunately. You've got to keep it in perspective a little bit."
Woods won 46 times, including 10 majors, in his 20s. He was the first player to put up such audacious numbers so early in his career, and odds are he'll be the last.
Here's a progress report on the game's young guys, mortals division.
