14-year-old named Tour Player of the Year

By Sam Laskaris
Though he’s only five feet tall and weighs about 100 pounds, Donald Bushman, Oglala Sioux, is making a rather big name for himself on the golf course.

Donald, who turned 14 Sept. 23, was rather impressive on the U.S. Kids Golf Northern Virginia Tour earlier this year.

The teen, who lives in Silver Spring, Md., participated in seven of the eight events on the tour. He registered a top three finish in all of those tournaments.

He ended up being named the Tour Player of the Year for his age group (13 and 14).
