She is only 4, but according to the timeline of golf prodigy Riley Adkins herself, she has been playing golf forever.
“Six,” Riley said on “Good Morning America” today when asked how long she has been playing the sport that has made her a star.
Riley, who lives with her family in North Carolina, actually picked up her first golf clubs when she was just one-and-a-half years old.
“Just watching me practice, she kind of picked it up,” Riley’s father, Chris Adkins, said on “GMA,” adding that he is a “so-so” player whom Riley could “probably” beat on the golf course.
Riley has improved her golf game by practicing the sport 30 to 45 minutes per day, according to her parents.
Although Riley is a pro on the golf course, she is still a kid at heart who likes to be called “princess” and loves the Walt Disney character “Doc McStuffins.”
