Transcript for Meet 21-Year-Old Golf Prodigy Mariah Stackhouse
Mariah Stackhouse has been showing us how it's done all morning long. She's been ruling the putt putt course. She's the 21-year-old golf prodigy from Stanford university and one of "Glamour's" top ten women. She's the youngest african-american woman to qualify for the U.S. Open. Please welcome Mariah to times square. She's always one of the nicest. Thank you. I love her caddies here. You have achieved so much. I love the Curtis cup, how you were able to help team usa in a victory over great Britain. That had to be very special. It was one of the most special moments of my life. One of the most historical competitions in golf. I've been playing with those girls since I was little. Now we get a chance to come together and represent America and defend the cup. It was so much fun. It's wonderful to see. You were 2 years old when your dad started taking you to the driving range. Started playing when you were 6. Won the Georgia women's amateur at 14. Come on. It's been a dream ride. My dad's been so great. Pi parents have been so supportive. My dad never forced me to do it. I have blossomed in the game. It's taken me to amazing places. I've met amazing people. Got me to Stanford. It's just been quite a journey. Look how grateful she is. So nice to see someone so appreciative. So talented. You have so much ahead of you. And she's majoring in communications. She'll be taking one of our jobs. I think it's great your parents let you find the love for the game. I'm sure they saw you were excellent. But they said, you know what? Unless you have that within you, you won't get to your level. They always told me to remember you're never going to be just a golfer. Never make that your whole world because they want me to be a well-rounded person and be great all around. It was always my decision. At the end of every year, my dad would make me take three to four weeks off. Decide, reflect. See if I want to continue playing. You have good parents. I do. You had decided to stay in school. We saw Jordan Spieth, he, winning the masters is great, he left school. 21 years old, winning the masters like this. You have said, you're going to slow your roll a little bit. You'll let it come in time? Absolutely. I value my education. I was so blessed to get into Stanford. I want to get that degree and learn from my peers, not just take the classes. I wouldn't trade I had for the world. I think we can learn something from you. Can I just clone you now? Show us your skills. We have a hazard. All right, all right. You don't usually golf in this attire. Not in heels. Over the hill. Oh, oh, come on. That was right on line. A little too hard. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Have you all done it? I'm a caddie. You're a caddie? How was last night with "Glamour" magazine? It was great. They arranged a panel for us in the audience. It was about focusing on how to land your dream job in 2015. They gave us advice on how to target your interests. Focus on your passions. One of the things I took away was there was a question asked about, your options and your interests. And limiting them. It said, focus on one thing, but you can do so many things. Women don't have to have one career in their lifetime. You can have 15 at any given moment. I took that away. If you have a passion, chase it. Amen! No rule that you can only have one career. Many like that. Somewhat your ten-year plan? In ten years, I hope to be the best on the lpga and competing. That's in my ten-year goal. My money's on you. I don't know. You know -- stand like this? I mean, honestly. If the windmill is not going, or the clown's mouth, I'm not good. I don't know what I'm doing here. Gentle putt. I was trying to bang it a little bit there. Well done. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Mariah, you are a breath of fresh air. Congratulations on all your success. We have the trophy, Gary, the trophy. Add another award to your collection. Until you win on the lpga
