Acrobatic golfer visits hometown course

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A Cedar Rapids golf course had a very unique golfer on its links Sunday.

"Joey O", the acrobatic golfer, performed before a small crowd at Airport National Golf Course. 

Joey's array of shots included hitting multiple balls at once, backwards facing clubs and standing atop a number of props from a big red ball to a unicycle.  

Although it's entertaining, he says there's a  deep message in this act. 

"The main message is to make good use of your mind, make good use of your time, to believe in yourself.  Its very important too when people reject you to never reject yourself and never belittle yourself," said Joey O.  "Always believe in yourself and always have a wonderful attitude." 

Joey is also an author. His most recent book is geared toward helping military veterans overcome physical and mental challenges.
