Fostered girl, nine, is on her way to The MASTERS for the Chip, Drive & Putt

As far as feel good stories go this one is pretty special. 

A nine-year-old girl who was adopted at the age of seven is on her way to the Masters for the Drive, Chip and Putt at Augusta National. 

Her name is Autumn Solesbee and she was adopted two years ago by parents Donnie and Jamie. 

GolfDigest reported that after watching the documentary "The Short Game" on Netflix she was absolutely hooked on the game.

Dad Donnie likes to document Autumn's golf journey on his Twitter page. Most recently, he shared the anniversary of the adoption. 

It appears that they even had made a golf room.

It looks like she practises all the time. 

Videos show her putting in the work on the range, on the putting green and even at home. 

There is no denying she is hugely talented. 

WATCH AUTUMN'S SWING BELOW

Her swing is absolutely pure and she's even got professionals taking notice. 

Max Homa, who usually roasts swings that are sent to him, just had to sit back and applaud. 

Autumn reportedly played her fisr nine-hole U.S Kids tournament in 2020.

She had to win three qualifiers (one was in the pouring rain) to make it to the Masters. 

Pretty remarkable really, considering two years ago she had never swung a club.
