With all of the recent hubbub surrounding Rory McIlroy, we sometimes forget that there are some other pretty darn good players out there who have yet to turn 25 years old.
Due to the sophistication and growth of golf over the past 20 years, today’s 25-year-old has a lot more experience and poise than those of the past. Just look at Jordan Spieth who, at only 19, has not only won his first tournament but manages the golf course like a wizened pro.
As Tiger Woods showed as a teenage phenom, and as Rory has shown by winning two majors already, youth should not be held against the young.
As you peruse this list of budding stars, know that all possess the talent, grit and desire to win big, early and often in their careers.
