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?
