VIDEO: 3-year-old Riley Adkins has powerful swing

Monday, May 5, 2014

Riley Adkins is just 3-years-old, but she has a swing most adults drool over.

Her father, Chris, said she got her first set of clubs – plastic, mind you – at the ripe old age of 1 1/2 years old, and that’s when she fell in love with the game.

The woman (not identified in the video) says Adkins probably practices 45 minutes a day. Let me reiterate that – 45 minutes A DAY as a 3-year-old.

One of the best parts of the video? When Adkins tells Winston-Salem, N.C., WXII 12 correspondent Talitha Vickers that she’s “pitiful” when she can’t make contact with the ball.

Tough critic.
