Golf fanatic Tony Amatruda has stunned friends by turning hundreds of old balls into models of famous characters including Homer Simpson, E.T. and Donald Trump.  When he returns from a round, 82-year-old great grandfather spends hours moulding tiny bits of clay onto his old balls before carefully drying them with a hairdryer and painting them.<br />
<br />
He even has a series of handmade tools he uses to add fine details and the painstaking process can take days.  Now his conservatory and three shelves of the glass cabinet in his sitting room are stacked with around 150 of the comical designs which include Miss Piggy, Yoda and a host of different animals.
