Fun and games with Trick-Shot wizard David Edwards

November 5, 2013

David Edwards may be universally regarded as the most entertaining trick-shot artist in the game but it's not just the applause that gives him a kick - he gets a bigger buzz from involving his audiences, particularly the youngsters, and explaining how it all works.

"It's good to get feedback from your audience," says David, who used to earn his living as a PGA club professional back in the UK. "I get a real buzz out of entertaining people and I love to draw the youngsters into the show and try to introduce them to the game from a different angle.

"There would be many more people playing golf if we could only break down the barriers of people who feel self-conscious about taking up the game. It's a daunting experience for newcomers coming into golf and I think we all have a duty to show that golf is fun and a game to be enjoyed.

"I love it when the kids get involved in the show. I enjoy doing impersonations of the big name players and encouraging the youngsters to have a go and share in the fun and games.

"I've performed my trick-shot shows all over the world and I've been having a particularly wonderful time this week with the crowd at Almouj Golf, The Wave Muscat. Many people who have been watching the show don't know a great deal about golf, which makes it all the more rewarding for me to show them the ropes.

"The number of schoolchildren who have joined in the show this week has created a lot of fun for all of us and I'd be surprised if some of these youngsters don't take up the game. All they need to do is go and see the PGA professional at their local golf club and take it from there."
