Addicted to Golf at Fourteen
Clearwater, FL (February 2009) - It was a quiet Sunday morning, as tranquil as the sport itself, on which the Florida State Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) golf tournament was held. Floridian youth from within a 100-mile radius of the Chi Chi Rodriguez Golf Club on McMullen-Booth Road came to compete in the tournament.
In a white golf cart sat one young participant next to his father. He clutched his golf club as he waited for his turn, round face full of outhful enthusiasm and zest for the game. "That’s Mason Fox,” a man said. “He’s one of the best fourteen-year olds in the state. But don’t tell him that, it’ll go straight to his head.”
