Emiliano Grillo – Another 22 Year Super Star?

So who is this Emiliano Grillo from Argentina that kicked off the Canadian open with an 8 under 64? He’s a guy that turned pro on the European Tour back in 2011 at the age of 19. Will he have another bogey free day today?

With only 1 professional win under his belt on the PGA Tour Latinoamerica he does have a decent number of top 10’s for a 22 year old. Despite Chad Campbell roaring in today with a 9 under, the young guys have been making noise this month so I won’t be counting him out for the win.

In case you don’t know Emiliano…

He has killer focus.

He knows how to chill out.

He doesn’t mind a good chat with the press.
