Russell has been a shocking golf expert since the age of six, and now participates in the first PGA tour tournament in the rocket mosaode classic starting Thursday in Detroit.

All eyes are ranked first in the world, and are located in a teenager who broke Tiger Woods as a young player on the day after his 15th birthday. In fact, PGA Tour rookie and mentor Raul Pereda had this to say about the golfing phenom: » He wasn’t going to tell the world he was going to wow everyone at Augusta in a few years, but it’s clear the talented young player still has a lot to offer.

And now, with a sponsor’s exemption, which allows tournament sponsors to hand out special invitations, Russell will play with the best players in his first PGA Tour event, including Rickie Fowler, Zach Johnson and Cameron Young. This follows a phenomenal performance on the Korn Ferry Tour, the PGA Tour’s developmental tour, where he became the youngest player to do so at 15 years, 5 months and 18 days old.

Players under the age of 18 are not eligible to play full-time on the tour, but Russell’s elite performances have already put him at the front of the queue. He not only qualified for the LECOM Suncoast Classic in April, he had top-25 finishes, including a five-under 66 in the final round with seven birdies over a 10-hole stretch.

“It was a great week. It was a real sensation,” Russell said later. “Especially in the first game, you get some strange looks, like, ‘Who’s that little kid on the training ground?’

“But everyone was so nice and helped me with everything. “I just go with the flow, take it as it comes and try to stay calm. I’ve had good shots at good times.

With the total purse for the Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club reaching $9.2 million (£7.27 million), Russell has already outdone older players, one of whom is Pereda. “He has a great grip and a great flop shot. He has a high, smooth swing and is in perfect tune when hitting shots out of the bunker,” he added of the Florida native. \ “I ran and run, jump strip. I saw everything with him. “This kid is a genius. I’m amazed at how much he’s developed as an athlete in such a short amount of time that I’ve known him,” said Brown. “I want to be with him for a long time, not because of what he does, but because of how he acts.”
