Alex Notte and Belen Mozo share a passion for golf. Now, the Bearden High School student who is a member of All Saints Church and the international golf pro have something else in common—a date to remember to Bearden’s senior prom.
Alex has become an overnight sensation after being featured in newspaper and television reports for his YouTube video inviting Miss Mozo, a rising star on the Ladies Professional Golf Association tour, to the prom. The video, which was shot by Alex’s sister, Arielle, has nearly 10,000 hits and the number has risen every day.
Read the rest of the article to learn what a special kid is Alex. Alex has neurological disabilities as a result of a very premature birth. But hello, put that aside - the guy has a mean swing in golf, in which he competes in Special Olympics, competes in a swim club, participates in Jr ROTC, and maintains a devout spiritual life. Frankly - and pun intended - that places him on par with his peers, if not shooting well below them with no handicap.
Here is my set of pictures that I shot that night.
