Recreational therapists are giving hope for those who love the game of golf, but who have a disability. The Fore Hole Golf Clinic works with recreational therapists and local golf professionals to teach handicapped golfers to make adaptations to the game based on their disability. They begin with simple putting and driving and hope golfers will soon move to play out on a course. Gene Baker, a cancer survivor five times over, has been attending the clinic since 1997. Because he’s had surgery on his shoulders, he’s had to make adaptations to his golf game. Now, Baker thinks he does pretty well. The Fore Hole Golf Clinic is a non-profit organization and will help 400 disabled people all over Ohio get back into the game of golf this year.
