Playing Golf With Parkinson's
GOLF IS HARD. GOLF WITH PARKINSON'S, a neurological disease that causes shaking and other symptoms, is harder. This video made by the Colorado Neurological Institute (CNI) profiles three men and a woman who haven't let Parkinson's stop them from enjoying the game.
I enjoyed their stories. Betsy is my favorite. She says you have to live your life and move on. Tom has benefited from the long putter. I like how he has adapted so he can make those three-footers.
The course setting is Colorado Golf Club in Parker, Colorado, site of the 2007 Senior PGA Championship and 2013 Solheim Cup, coming in August. The 14th CNI Golf Classic will be held there on Monday, July 29 to raise awareness about neurological conditions.
