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.

    A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

    Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
