The clinic will feature the Dennis Walters Golf Show with special appearances from Las Vegas organizations’ mascots.
“The youth clinic is a free event for children to learn that golf can be fun while enjoying various trick shots and stunts from an inspirational source in Dennis Walters, who is paralyzed from the waist down,” explains Stephanie Maes, tournament services manager for the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. “The hats will be a great way for the kids to stay cool and have as a keepsake once the day concludes.”
