The use of the term “prodigy” with youth athletes

In Uncategorized on October 19, 2010 at 11:57 am

Should youth athletes be described as prodigies?  I was interviewed on the Golf Channel this summer to discuss a young female golfer named Amari Avery, who at 6 is already drawing comparisons to Tiger Woods and Michelle Wie.  I’m reposting my blog entry from here because I think this topic is an important one for families of athletes in all sports and I believe my commentary isn’t just for golfers.
