Whatever Happened To... Marty James

When he was in grade school, Marty James was a legend at the old Peck's Lake golf course; he would later go head to head against Tiger Woods

He started playing the game at the old Verde Valley Country Club at Peck's Lake when he was 4 years old. Once Clarkdale's Marty James stepped onto the golf team at Mingus Union High School as a freshman in 1988, he was already one of the best prep golfers in Arizona.
