'The next Tiger Woods' misses the cut

February 27, 2009

New Zealand amateur Danny Lee, 19, no doubt has a bright future, but he's already made an embarrassing misstep. After Lee won the Johnnie Walker Classic, he declared that he wanted to be the next Tiger Woods.

The following week, he entered the Nationwide Tour's Moonah Classic in Australia, shot 74-75, and missed the cut by five shots.

Children, the proverb says, should be seen and not heard. Good advice.
