PGA Tour prodigies having incredible swings at a young age is nothing new - Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy immediately come to mind - but that doesn't make those swings any less fun to watch

And the latest sensation taking over the Tour, Cameron Champ, seems to be cut from the same cloth.

The 23-year-old rookie has been overpowering golf courses this fall and picked up his first victory last month at the Sanderson Farms Championship.

But Champ isn't doing anything out of the ordinary ... for him. His swing has looked the same for quite some time. As pointed out on Twitter by Golf Channel's Brandel Chamblee, he had the goods at 12 years old:

Champ, who also has T-25, T-28 and T-10 finishes in addition to his win this fall, is once again in contention at this week's RSM Classic, in large part because his swing works no matter what club is in his hands. 

Here he is showing off a casual 221-yard, 7-iron on the Seaside Course's 12th hole Friday:

In conclusion: If you find yourself with a golf swing similar to 12-year-old Cameron Champ at any point in your life, don't mess with it.
