In Dubai, a 13-year-old golfer playing in a group with Tommy Fleetwood and Dustin Johnson hit a better tee shot than both of them. And to think that any of us accomplished anything at age 13.
🏌What dreams are made of!

Oscar Murphy has a six handicap, but that didn’t stop him from besting the world’s number one golfer from the tee box. And when he talked on TV afterward, he didn’t stop there.
Lovely interview with 13 yr old Oscar Murphy and Sir @NickDougherty5 on @SkySportsGolf after he took on @McIlroyRory and took down @DJohnsonPGA and @TommyFleetwood1 in a nearest the pin challenge at the @ADGolfChamps! Hope it's ok to post guys. Gr8 to see kids in the game. pic.twitter.com/gYsq3U8zlY

“Rory’s next”. I wish I had that kind of confidence and skill to do anything right now in my life, let alone when I was 13. Keep grinding Oscar; you’ll show them all.
