Walker Matthew Hilton, it appears, was literally born to be a golfer.
At 3 months old and proudly sporting his Pinehurst onesie, Walker got a quick golf lesson recently from his grandfather, Jeff Tipton. Knowing that a good grip is the foundation to every good golf swing, Jeff tried demonstrating for his grandson the proper form – and it was a moment captured beautifully on video.
Walker is the son of Matt and Tiffany Hilton of Fort Worth, Texas. While the video cuts off rather quickly, a reliable source reports to us that Tiffany was in a rush to hug her boy, leading to the abrupt end of the clip. We at Pinehurst champion this kind of response to such a perfect golf moment. Clearly, the slow motion replay reveals a rather accomplished student.
And it’s a good thing. More lessons, it seems, are coming.
“While he is a proponent of the baseball grip at the present,” writes Jeff Tipton, “his maternal grandfather is trying to guide him toward the Vardon grip in coming weeks.”
Keep the camera ready.
