Competitive golf tournament for amputees starts this week in Falmouth

...Once he got his prosthetic leg, though, it didn’t take long for him to return to one of his happy places — the golf course.

He found almost instant success, and even recorded his first hole-in-one in September 2013 while playing the 17th hole at The Woodlands in Falmouth.

If he could find success, he thought, why not help out other amputees with similar passions?

First, he helped found the Amputee Association of Maine, of which he is the board president. The reason for creating the non-profit organization was to help centralize and discover information for amputees.
