Tyler Mitchell is a junior at TCHS. Mitchell is Trigg County‚s next, potential state champion golfer. He began hitting the ball around at the age of three! He began entering into tournaments at 7-years-old. Butch, his father, motivated him and his brother, Curt, to play the skilled sport of golf.
Curt played on Trigg County’s golf team with his younger brother while in Cadiz. He graduated from high school last year and now attends Western Kentucky University.
Tyler plays in state and national tournaments as an individual and puts a lot of time into practice. He is very humble about his talent, but lets it show up in his results.
Golf isn’t the only sport Tyler has ever played. He was involved in basketball and baseball at a younger age, but has since devoted all of his free time to golf, the sport in which he hopes to go pro in.
Tyler has seen much interest from some prestigious athletic colleges. Some of these colleges are Memphis, Kennesaw State, Liberty, and Vanderbilt. Vandy is the college of Mitchell’s choice, as of now. Keep in mind that he’s still a junior.
I asked Tyler how he felt about next year’s season. “We’ve got some younger players that don’t have a lot of experience, but have shown potential,” replied Mitchell.
Tyler performs well at school, also. He is ranked very high in his class and scored beyond average on the ACT test. The boy is naturally academically strong!
Tyler is on track to become an engineer or pilot after receiving a college education.
