Ethan Shelton still swinging away on the golf course at 109 years young


Year after year, Ethan Shelton shows us you're never too old to live.
 He is 109 years old and appreciating everyday he gets on the golf course.
 "I'm trying to play a little golf," Ethan Shelton says.  "There's places I'm kind of lucky and places I'm not very lucky at all."
 For nearly 20 years, 109 year old golfer Ethan Shelton has played at Indian Lake Hills on Father's Day with his family.
 "It's tradition," Shelton says.
 He will be 110 in just three weeks and he's definitely slowing down, but it hasn't slowed his enthusiasm for the game.
 "It's quite a bit harder, but I manage to get in a good play every once in a while," Shelton says.
 "He's slowing down, but...I have to admit he is getting old, but today he played 18.  We're just tickled to pieces that he still can do it," Ethan's son, Joe Shelton said.
 He plans on being back on the golf course for Father's Day next year.
