Six-year-old Fil-Am golf prodigy touted as next Tiger Woods



Only 6 years old, Amari Avery is called as 'Tigress' and being touted as the next Tiger Woods. Like Tiger, she’s also half Asian her mom is Pinay. She and Tiger Woods have the same birthday, December 30th. Comparing the two when it comes to achievements, she won the Callaway Junior World Championships at age 6, Woods did it at age 8. In 2010, she’s placed first at the US Kids Golf Tour Championships and the Futures Golf World Championships. She’s taken first place at nearly a dozen local tournaments this year.


This young, petite and half-Pinay in some ways may have already surpassed Tiger Woods.  She won the Callaway Junior World Championships at age 6, Woods did it at age 8. In 2010 alone, she’s placed first at the US Kids Golf Tour Championships and the Futures Golf World Championships. She’s taken first place at nearly a dozen local tournaments this year. When asked about Tiger, she said Avery told ABC7.com, "I don't like him because I could beat him."


Avery practices everyday after school with the help of a local pro coach. Avery started golfing since she was three and a half years old. It was her dad who discovered her talent.  She's hoping to win another 2 tournaments this year and her younger sister Allana, age 3,  is also showing interest in the same sport.
