Enjoy an evening of free family fun on Monday, June 24 as the 2019 World Golf Hall of Fame Inductee Dennis Walters brings the “Dennis Walters Golf Show” to Mud Run Golf Course & Driving Range presented by First Tee of Greater Akron. Festivities begin at 6 PM with the hour long show starting at 7:30 PM. Please bring your own chairs.
The show will include trick shots done with a wide variety of items. Walter’s theory is that if you have a good swing you can hit good shots with almost anything and he proves this by hitting precise shots with clubs made from a fishing rod, a crutch, a radiator hose and a cell phone. He also has a club with 3 universal joints on the shaft and a club with 3 heads (his 3 iron). Dennis hits shots blindfolded, through fire and let’s not forget the 200-yard putt. Other highlights you will see in the show are shots hit off 3-foot-high tees, off a watch and with an egg balanced on the ball. Woven throughout the show is Walter’s powerful motivating message that dreams can come true with hard work and perseverance, one of First Tee’s Nine Core Values. The show then concludes with his famous rapid-fire machine gun shot where he hits 5 consecutive shots while they roll down a ramp, the last one being a special exploding ball.
Walter’s is one of only eleven honorary lifetime members of The PGA of America. This group included three former Presidents of The United States, Eisenhower, Ford and George HW Bush. In 2008, The PGA of America presented him with their highest honor, The Distinguished Service Award. The USGA bestowed its highest honor, the Bob Jones Award, on Dennis Walters at a ceremony on June 13, 2018.
