Scott Stallings chose golf because of Tiger Woods' 1997 Masters
That 12-stroke victory at Augusta convinced a middle schooler to drop every other sport.
As inspiration stories go, it's probably a common one for 20-something golfers, but not all 20-something golfers are three-time winners on the PGA Tour.
Scott Stallings got his third PGA Tour victory on Sunday and reminisced afterwards about what got him into golf to begin with.
He said it was Tiger Woods' 12-stroke win at the 1997 Masters.
"At that moment, I quit everything, every sport I was playing and said 'That's what I want to go do.' And every one of my friends thought I was crazy," said Stallings.
It was a good thing he did, too.
Tiger's presence has certainly made the sport more popular and thus profitable.
Case in point: Stallings won more on Sunday at the Farmers Insurance Open ($1.1 million) than the top four finishers (Woods, Tom Kite, Tommy Tolles, and Tom Watson) at that 1997 Masters combined ($1.09 million).
