Boy, do we have a small star follow-up for you.

A few weeks ago, we introduced you to Scottsdale's own Mason Quagliata as he was gearing up for the Drive, Chip & Putt national finals at the Masters. Well, earlier this week, he won it!

Mason took home the 14- and 15-year-old national championship -- and as you can imagine, his phone was blowing up after the win.

"You're not allowed to have your phone at Augusta, so when I got home I had like 30 text messages, 15 Snapchats, and all my social media was blowing up," he said. "It was just, 'Congrats, that was so cool, we watched you on TV,' and all that.

"That's really cool because nobody else made it in Arizona, and it's really cool to represent the whole West Coast also. It was just something I've never felt before because I've never won that big of a tournament. I've won small tournaments, but there was nothing this big before."

Congrats, Mason -- and thanks for doing Arizona proud!
