KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Golfer Belen Mozo has granted the wish of a Knoxville high school student and agreed to be his prom date.
Mozo's agent, Miles Soboroff, confirmed Monday that the Spanish golfer will accompany 19-year-old Alex Notte to the Bearden High School prom on May 11.
Alex's older sister, Arielle, told The Knoxville News Sentinel that she helped extend the invitation to Mozo by shooting a video and posting it on YouTube and Facebook.
Mozo learned of the video, called Alex's mother, Kristine Notte, to confirm the invitation was for real, and then accepted it.
The sister said Alex, who has hearing, vision and neurological disorders, has been taking golf lessons and met Mozo two years ago at the Wegmans LPGA Championship in Rochester, N.Y.
