ANOTHER PERSONALITY PIECE ABOUT Tryon, this time by Rick Reilly from Sports Illustrated. Reilly likens the news of a 17-year old qualifying for the PGA Tour to Britney Spears replacing Alan Greenspan as Federal Reserve Chairman, and contrasts Ty's life with that of his own 17-year old son's: Like our son, Ty has a girlfriend (except that his is an Elite agency model), homework (except that his aunt tutors him wherever he is) and neighbors to annoy (except that his include 'N Sync's Justin Timberlake, two doors down). The big difference is that Bill's (Tryon) kid drives the ball an average of 309 yards laser-straight, shot 66 on the final day of Q school to earn his Tour card and stands to make more money by his 18th birthday than the gross national product of Uzbekistan. That last part is a bit overboard, as Uzbekistan's GNP is roughly $24 million, but we get the idea.
