Kid had unusual circumstances. Shorter hitter, first to hit, most likely hybrids and fairway woods, clock starts on the first hitter usually and that was usually him. Caddy not necessarily fully in tune w/ the kid's way of playing and the club distances, very windy day when the kid was on the course, fast greens. Kid isn't conditioned to a course found to be difficult/challenging, even to greats like Lefty - no big deal. Looks like he's kicking PGA Champ Keegan Bradley's ass even with the penalty. He has yet to three-putt a single green during this tournament.
I'm a fan of the kid now - and hope that he becomes the world's number one some day.
Everyone has unusual circumstances... not going to treat him differently because he's a kid.
But yeah, he is beating Keegan, props!
My point is the kid has more reasons than today's PGA professonals like Jim Furyk for instance. He (Mr UglySwing) has played Augusta National for over a decade, has an experienced caddy, isn't nearly the first player in the group to hit like the kid.
What's Furyk's excuse?
