In April, we came across the story of James Grimes, a 3-year-old with a nice golf swing in Louisiana. Back then he had yet to compete in a tournament.

And of course, footage of a 2-year-old Tiger Woods on the "Mike Douglas Show" was spliced in as well. So before Baby James even reaches pre-school, the Tiger Woods comparisons have begun:

Check back in 15 years and we'll see if James is still on track to become the next Tiger. Or the next Rory McIlroy. Or Jordan Spieth.
