Father and Son Find Comon Bond in Golf

ELMSFORD, N.Y. — The frenetic conversation stopped mid-sentence each time Michael Mancino spotted the range cart heading out to pick up the golf balls carpeting the plastic turf. In a matter of seconds, the calculating 8-year-old was set up and locked on.
It was a game of cat and mouse.
Before each mighty swing, the little professor in soft spikes quickly reset the angle of attack without looking up to locate the source of his sudden inspiration. The third-grader at Central School in Mamaroneck has a knack with numbers.
"He was playing Monopoly at 5 years old and counting the money," Sal Mancino said of his son. "When you rolled the dice, he already knew where you were going to land. He never counted the spaces. He just kind of visualized the board."
It was therapeutic.
