Handicap? What handicap? You can play golf.

With the RBC Heritage golf event on Hilton Head Island was held last weekend, the usual third-Saturday-of-the-month Adaptive Golf Clinic at the Legends of Parris Island golf course has been shifted to this Saturday, April 25th.

The session, sponsored by Beaufort Memorial in conjunction with the Legends course, will be take place from 9 to 11 a.m. on the driving range. Civilians, veterans and active military personnel are all invited to join the two-hour session and learn how to use adaptive techniques and tools to tee off and putt better than ever.

“Every one of our clinics gets more and more fun,” said Beaufort Memorial physical therapist Steve Giammona, who helps organize the classes in partnership with the Legends staff. “Whether you’re recovering from a stroke, injury or amputation, you can still enjoy playing golf and improve your balance and coordination in the process.”

At last month’s session, participants enjoyed fantastic weather and the fellowship of their fellow golfers while learning more about how to improve their golf swing. They also had the opportunity to meet adaptive golfers Rich O’Brian and Fred Gutierrez from Charleston (pictured here).
