Like point guards and pop stars, Southern California golfers are achieving prominence at progressively younger ages. Sihwan Kim turned 15 this fall and already the 6-foot, 220-pound freshman from La Mirada can drive the ball 290 yards -- and that's on a bad swing off the toe of his driver. Kim won the boys' division of the L.A. Junior City Championship Invitational on April 5 by shooting a seven-under-par 209 over three rounds.

One of golf's biggest names is entered in today's U.S. Open sectional qualifier at El Caballero Country Club in Tarzana, where four players will emerge from a field of 68 having earned a tee time at the major championship in Pinehurst, N.C.
