|The young pretenders|
|Around the Academy:
At 17, Ty Tryon became the youngest-ever player to qualify to play on the US professional tournament circuit, known as the PGA Tour.
Only the very best professional golfers get to play on the Tour.
Ty made his debut at the Phoenix Open in January 2002 - arriving with his maths book and some ''history stuff'' to study!
In fact he was still so young that at first he was only allowed to play in a certain number of events.
He is one of the youngest golfers to turn professional.
Some people thought he was too young.
They felt he should go to college to finish his studies before opting to make golf his career.
But his dad Bill thinks he's done the right thing.
"You cannot underestimate the power of a dream," he says.
And Ty is already certainly dreaming big: "Everybody used to say that golfers peak when they are 35. I might be retired at 35."
He's already a millionaire from sponsorship deals Callaway Golf and Target department stores.
He has an agent, a swing coach, an image consultant, a psychologist, a yoga instructor and two massage therapists.
And an aunt who helps him with his home, though it is by telephone!
