There will be two special junior clinics during championship week. On Tuesday, June 25, a clinic hosted by 2010 U.S. Women’s Open champion Paula Creamer and Today show host Matt Lauer will be held at 2 p.m. on the Sebonack Golf Club practice range. Creamer and Lauer will discuss their backgrounds and love for the game of golf, followed by a display of trick shots and challenges.
On Wednesday, June 26, the Dennis Walters Golf Show will take place at 3 p.m., also on the Sebonack driving range. Paralyzed from the waist down, Dennis Walters dazzles with an array of trick shots while sitting in his wheelchair. His dog, Bucky, also plays a prominent role in the show, as he barks out the correct answers to Dennis’s golf trivia questions. Admission to both clinics is free to all ticket holders.
