Amputees take part in Monroe golf tournament

Posted: Updated:
MONROE -

Amputees hit the golf course for the Howard Taylor Memorial Golf Classic, now in its 19th year.

The golf outing in Monroe brought together people with different kinds of limb loss.

As you can see, it did not slow them down.

"You're not limited just because you have limb loss," says Dr. Heikki Uustal, with the HMH, JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Inst. "That's such a great concept to appreciate and if you could do it before than you can get back to it, maybe even better."

Eighty-five people were on the golf course, with about a third of them being amputees.
