14 year old wins San Francisco City Championship

Unbelievable.... 14 ...
Briones is youngest champion

Monday, March 9, 2009

(03-08) 18:59 PST -- Carlos Briones didn't speak English when he moved from the Philippines to the U.S. at age 5. His first words were "McDonald's" and "cheeseburger," he joked, and two years later he found a hobby when he swung a club for the first time at Tony Lema Golf Course in San Leandro.

"At first, I didn't like golf - you have to think a lot," he said. "But then I kept playing and started to like it a little. I just got hooked."

Briones, now 14, learned the game nearly as quickly as the new language. He told his story Sunday at Harding Park, holding a large crystal bowl signifying his victory in the San Francisco City Championship. It was no ordinary win, either - by beating Cal freshman Jamie Coré, 3 and 2, Briones became the youngest men's champion in the City's 92-year history...

And the winner of the Womens Championship was 17.

Why do I feel so old?

Don't answer that.
