''As a golf pro, I had a headstart with the gym ball as it was used during physical training, so I was more comfortable while trying out tricks on them. With each show, I get more confidence to perfect it.''Among the other tricks on show in Muscat were hitting a moving ball dropped from a 20-foot pipe and bursting balloons while playing shots.
