Incredible Stories Of Tour Pros As Junior Golfers

Every once in a while, the internet comes up with an awesome idea.

Last week, SB Nation writer Spencer Hall shared a post on Twitter of a high-school-aged college football player making his peers look silly with the caption, “Nothing makes me happier than stories of normal people having to deal with mutant athletes in high school.” 

While that statement may not sound like an invitation to share personal horror stories of getting crushed by future star athletes, it opened the floodgates. From there,’s Dylan Dethier took the torch and turned it into a purely golf-related question, asking his followers to share stories of future Tour pros beating their heads in during junior golf. 

The responses didn’t disappoint — and the entire thread is worth a read — but here are a few of the ones that really stood out.
