Testimonials

Sgt. Tim Johannsen (Ret.)

May 28, 2015

Golf, for me, is physical and mental. Physically, golf has improved my balance and core strength, swinging a golf club is no easy task, especially on prosthetics. Mentally, when I get frustrated by the daily obstacles of wearing prosthetics and being in a wheelchair its nice to be to go out and hit a few balls and clear my head. Although therapy is a great reason for me to paly golf, no reason is more important than being able to play golf with my son.  Because I have lost my legs I can’t run or jump so I won’t be able to play sport like football or basketball with him.  But I can swing a club and will be able to play 18 holes with him when he’s old enough.
