Yesterday I golfed 18 holes with my new snap on clubs. Everything went fine until the 12th hole. After I made contact with the ball, the shaft of my driver slipped out of its attachment and helicoptered down the fairway. I didn't know whether to shout "FORE" or "INCOMING". I apologized to the beer girl for having impaled her and still bogeyed the hole.
I am not allowed to advertise for companies or individuals when I am given the honor of telling my story, however, I always take the opportunity to say what certain companies have done for
me. I called several golf equipment manufacturers about what they could do for a quadruple amputee. Only one, PING, took on the challenge. PING and Stanford University developed a
set of "snap on" golf clubs that allows me once again to play golf on a beautiful day, on a beautifully manicured course and, like my partners, openly take the Lord's name in vain as my
ball sinks in to the pond. Thank you PING!
I am a quadruple amputee with a sense of humor and a passion for life. I like to tell stories.
