wow, had no idea about this.. the kid (11 years old) is dominant...entertaining and sad story about his mother neglecting him too.... AK's half brother.
kid phenoms are strange. the little grade 6 and grade 7 basketball phenoms i know of were lucky to play substitute minutes for a half-decent college basketball program. grade 7 basketball rankings are absurd. not to mention grade 4 - i kid you not - rankings.......... kids think if nothing bad happens they'll be in the NBA......... sometimes best players are those that were smaller and had to develop key skills and then had growth spurt. so they were bigger players with great skills.
golf might be a bit better because being big doesn't matter that much. but having obsessed, sponsoring parents does.
local kid i know of who shot 61 at age 12 in a full length tournament hasn't sniffed the PGA tour.
wittenburg sp? was a big prospect. probably the biggest of his age group. has had some success. paired with tiger in late final round a few years ago. had to rule on where TW's shot crossed the hazard.
