Matty Du Plessis is an 11-year-old superstar who has probably accomplished more in his short life thus far than most people will in their lives ever. According to My Champlain Valley, Matty has an incredible golf game going for him, but that’s not all that he does. The Vermont resident (by way of Cape Town, South Africa) also has his own YouTube channel where he posts rap videos and golf tricks (usually together), and his own website complete with his very own clothing line. Again, he is only 11.
“The videos were really a way for me to expose myself to the business. I want to be out there, so I just start to make these videos and put them on top of what I did every day,” Matty explained. “Whenever I pitch up every day, I don’t know what’s going to happen. So I would generally just have a camera by my side. It could be something amazing that I just thought of.”
Matty Du Plessis released his rap song “Stop, Drop, And Make A 12 Foota” on YouTube last month. So far, over 20,000 people have seen the video, which shows the youngster rapping his own lyrics to the tune of “Fancy” by Iggy Azalea. In the video, he also putts 12-foot golf shots, which he supposedly “never misses.”
According to NECN, Matty was just 2-years-old when he first picked up a golf club. While he may enjoy rapping and being a young businessman, Matty says that he wants to be a PGA star; at the end of the day, it’s still about golf for him.
“I try to make stuff that’ll entertain people, but it’s still golf.”
And Matty Du Plessis isn’t the only young golf star. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Lucy Li qualified for the U.S. Open in 2014. At just 11-years-old, Lucy was the youngest athlete ever to qualify for the event. Perhaps Lucy and Matty should team up.
