Billy "The Kid" Mayfair of Phoenix shoots sub-par golf and regularly whacks the ball 215 yards off the tee. His other stats: age 13, 5 feet and 109 pounds. Small wonder that the stocky blond Jack Nicklaus lookalike won the Junior World Golf Championship in his age group both in 1976 and again last July. The strongest part of his game is putting, and he's impatient for further growth ("My hands are too small to really grip the club") and more heft behind his swing. "When I get a little bigger," he figures, "I'll really start scoring." So Billy is heavily into pasta and Mexican cuisine, though he has a nervous stomach and once barfed three times in the men's locker room before going out and winning a tournament. Billy began to develop his different strokes at 20 months with a set of toy clubs. By 4 he had a scaled-down wood and iron and would join his father, Dick, a Cadillac salesman, on the links. "You can't imagine those shots are coming from a kid who wears braces on his teeth," says local pro Bill Farkas. Billy the Kid practices at least four hours seven days a week and won't long be content with his nearly 100 amateur trophies. "They measure you by the money you win," he grins, "and I want to be the best."
