The Good Walk blog has a moving piece on a family member’s struggle with paralysis and what the game of golf means to him. An excerpt:
What is it about the game of golf that instills such passion in the people who play it? That after an accident like Bart suffered; one of his first thoughts is about getting back out on the course. It’s something about being out on the course, in nature, taking a good ribbing from a playing partner, or a $2 Nassau bet, or the feeling of that purely struck drive that happens all too infrequently, that keep us coming back out for more. For Bart it will be baby steps for sure. Just being able to swing a golf club is going to take some serious time. But he’s determined and I believe him when he says he’ll be back out there.
