SUGAR LAND - For most…golf is a headache, a sport which is more frustrating than relaxing. Junior Hernandez sees it as an escape.

“When I go to the golf course, everything goes away,” Hernandez said.

The 14-year old from Sugar Land grew up around the game and the minute he could pick up a golf club he started to learn how to play.

“Ever since I saw people hitting golf balls, I thought I want to be like them,” Hernandez said. “I want to be someone who makes millions of dollars and try to be the best I can be.”

At nine years old he started playing in tournaments…and the in the 5 years since, he’s won so many of them that he’s lost count…so, what’s his secret?

KHOU 11 Sports reporter Daniel Gotera introduces you to our Athlete of the Week.
