One-armed golfer has powerful drive, even better delivery

What if you were an up and coming golfer, good enough to hang with some peer named Tiger, and then something happened that changes how you look at life, much less your swing and game?

Perhaps, the bigger question is what does a golfer do when he loses an arm?

And, then what does that golfer do when he realizes the bigger lesson and message in his personal loss?

To find out the answers to these questions, check out the Houston Chronicle article about
Larry Alford.

I can personally relate to the painful details of Alford’s story, although the specifics are different, much of his story and mine are the same. Except, I don’t take my message to the golf course. I once read that there are no mistakes in life, only lessons, and that the only mistakes occur when we fail to learn the lessons. It sounds like Alford is taking the lessons and paying them forward, one powerful stroke at a time.
