Just wait punks... September 11, 2010!
Umm... 57, That Ain't Bad!
By Kickntrue on 7/29/10
An Alabama teen won the Alabama Boys State Junior Championship this week. It turns out shooting a 57 will do that for you.
Bobby Wyatt shot a 57 at the Alabama Boys State Junior Championship.

The University of Alabama-bound teen, who turns 18 this weekend, had 12 birdies, an eagle and five pars Wednesday on the par-71, 6,628-yard course at the Country Club of Mobile. His birdie putt hung on the lip on the 18th green and he had to settle for par.
Aww, shucks. A Par?!

Wyatt has won the state's amateur tournament for the past 3 years. I guess it's fair to say 'Bama has a decent prospect headed their way. You know, if you define "decent" as "out of this world sick with the flat stick," otherwise it'd probably be fair to call Wyatt "good."

Thanks to the story tip from our (very active recently) forums. No "legal" pics- so enjoy this one of a couple jort-loving (it's fair to assume) Tide fans.

57? That's some mad-skills, and being in-the-zone at the same time. I shot 58 once - on a computer golf game.

@Banker85 this was a junior event. he's not in college yet..... can you say scholarship?

but i thought the new grooves were supposed to even the playing field this year and prevent low scores. wth?

mmontisano says:
sorry, i misread your statement.

but yeah, get the money first, why the hell not? the kid is obviously used to winning, so he might as well test his game against the best, right?

Why not go pro, think Ty Tryon or Michelle Wie.

mmontisano says:
see, there's the thing. i really think the only mistake Michelle Wie made was trying to go against the men. she was a force, she was able to compete, and she finished well in the majors. she was ready...

i just think all of those MCs and near DFLs against the men messed with her confidence. then when add on wrist injury, it just compounded.
