Ty Tryon

Look out Tiger Woods, here comes Ty Tryon. On March 9th, 2001 Ty became the youngest golfer to make the cut at a PGA tournament since 1957. With a name like Ty Tryon, you might think this guy is from some kinda sci-fi movie. Ty is actually just from Orlando, Florida - but his golf game is definitely out of this world.

In his first round of professional golf, Ty nailed seven birdies at the Honda Classic to finish at five under par. He didn't hit the golf ball as well in the second round, but Ty still managed to make the cut - something even the great Tiger Woods never did in his first PGA tournament. Ty finished the tournament at 10 under par which left him tied for 39th place - pretty impressive for a first tournament. He would've collected more than 12 thousand dollars for his finish, but because Ty is still an amateur he took home nothing - not even one cent. That kinda sucks, because Ty says he's been saving up to buy a new amp for his car. But he'll have a shot again next year - because he played so well at this year's tournament, he's automatically qualified to play in the Honda Classic next year as well.

Ty's real name is William Augustus Tryon IV, but his friends have always called him Ty. That's pretty cool because people with names like William Augustus Tryon IV tend to get beat up a lot in school, even if they are great golfers.
