Two Compton Sisters are Slicing the Competition with Their Golf Skills


Layla and Roxy Phillips are taking the golf world by storm at only 6 and 4 years old.

The two tiny Tigers in the making are making huge impressions with their golf skills.

Layla has won a Southern California PGA drive, chip and putt competition, qualifying her for a junior world competition in San Diego. 

There she'll be competing against kids from Japan, China, Mexico and other countries.

Little sister Roxy says she loves putting while her older sister prefers hitting down the fairway.

CEO of Help Youth Through Golf, Luis Batson says the Phillips girls remind him of two other famous athletic sisters.

"They are very, very good. I can only compare them to the sisters Williams in tennis." 

The girls learned to golf at two when their mother Jasimen wrote to the golf course next to their home about all the stray balls landing in their lawn.

The course, Maggie Hathaway Golf Course in South Los Angeles, apologized by offering the family golf lessons.

Jasimen says that while she's proud of her daughters' success, they know what's important.

"In our family, education is always the first priority. So our first goal is full-ride scholarships to Stanford. Everything else after that is icing on the cake."
