World Renowned Golf Trick Shot Artist Craig Hocknull Set to Perform at Waste Management Phoenix Open

Aussie Golf Pro Set to Wow Crowds With His Outback Golf Show

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - January 21, 2011) -  Australian golf trick shot entertainer, Craig Hocknull, will be taking his Outback Golf Show to the Waste Management Phoenix Open on Monday, January 31st at the TPC Scottsdale - Champions Course at 10:00am. Hocknull, a PGA member of Australia, America and Canada will come to Scottsdale to entertain and motivate local youth during the R.S. Hoyt Jr. Family Foundation "Dream Day" activities and junior golf clinic presented by PING which is coordinated by The First Tee of Phoenix.

"I love to inspire and motivate kids to take up the game," said Hocknull. "The First Tee of Phoenix is a fantastic place to learn about the game, work on your swing and build solid character values that we want all of our kids to learn." Hocknull has had over one million YouTube hits and his reputation is spreading as one of the elite trick shot golf artists in the world.

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oy, Oy, Oy! will be heard across the TPC fairways as Hocknull shares tails of growing up in the outback all while hitting drives 300 yards out of mid-air using hammers and baseballs for golf clubs and hitting shots "faster than a lizard drinking mate." This year, Hocknull will team up with 7-year-old golf phenomenon, cancer survivor and motivational speaker Kyle Lograsso. A guaranteed show stopper will be when Lograsso chips a ball to Hocknull and he hits it in mid-air.

This action packed event will bring out the best Arizona has to offer thanks to the combined efforts of The Phoenix Thunderbirds, The First Tee of Phoenix, TPC Scottsdale, Craig Hocknull, Kyle Lograsso and family, The Southwest Section PGA and the many volunteers. The show will take at TPC Scottsdale located at 17020 North Hayden Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85255.
