  • The Wellington Advertiser - Amazing trick shot golf show Aug. 27 will benefit KidsAbility
    and perseverance you can achieve success at almost anything The show lasts about an hour and is a demonstration of precision golf from start to finish Walters said The trick shots or as I like to call them shots from unusual lies are done with a wide variety of items My theory is that if you have a good swing you can hit good shots with almost anything and I prove this by hitting precise shots with clubs made from a fishing rod a crutch a radiator hose and a cell phone Having trouble with irons Walters has clubs especially made for him I also have a club with 3 universal joints on the shaft and a club with 3 heads my 3 iron I hit shots blindfolded through fire and while the balls are rolling down a ramp Other highlights you will see in the show are shots hit off three foot high tees off a watch and with an egg balanced on the ball And of course let s not forget to mention the 220 yard putt None of these would be possible without my custom built Yamaha golf cart The special swivel seat allows me to recreate a natural golf swing which makes the cart one of my most important pieces of equipment Background information and golf tips are always included in the show which also includes an opening act Super Dog Benji Hogan the touring pro from the Miami Dog Pound He does a variety of tricks but is best known for his uncanny ability to correctly answer math problems golf trivia questions and general information questions He does that by barking out the answer Walters said I ask him a few questions just to get him warmed up and then I en cour age the audience to try and stump him The crowd also plays a major role in the show as there is much audience participation Items such as Jelly Bellies a Nautica watch and a can of Arizona Ice Tea are given out during the show The show moves along with the trick shot presentation and concludes with the inspiring message that very few things in this world are impossible if you are willing to work hard and persevere Ariss Valley Golf Club general manager Phil Brace said that head golfing pro Paul Cotey has known Walters for over 20 years having met him when he was doing a show at one of Arnold Palmer s golf tournaments Brace added that Cotey also is aware of the need for cash for KidsAbility and so the fund raiser was created KidsAbility Centre for Child Development is a chari table organiza tion established in 1957 to help children with disabilities It is committed to partner ships with individuals and agencies to enhance the ser vices available to children with disabilities It has offices in Fergus Cambridge Guelph and Kitch ener Tickets for the show are 15 for adults and children under 12 pay 5 The
