Jane Park appreciates the quiet, so she tries to enjoy it while she can. She's in no hurry to join the media circus that follows teen golfer Michelle Wie and is relieved that she doesn't have that degree of limelight. "I'm not ready to be a superstar," Park said. But were it not for the exploits of other high-profile teens, she probably would be one. Her accomplishments rival -- and in some cases even surpass -- those of Wie and other well-known peers such as Morgan Pressel and Paula Creamer.

Jane Park sounds quite like most 13-year-olds, punctuating her perky sentences with adjectives such as "cool" and "awesome," as well as other bits of adolescent lingo. Such vernacular sums up her golf game, too. She's awesome! She might become, like, the next Tiger Woods! So say observers--those her own age, anyway--who have seen Park swing a golf club. But elders are impressed, too.
