A swift swing and the satisfying thunk as a golf club hits the ball is something that lovers of the game struggle to find following a stroke. On Thursday morning, stroke survivors worked with a PGA Golf Pro at The Highlands Golf Course to adjust their swing and get back on the course.
According to the American Stroke Association, stroke is a leading cause of long term disability among adults in the U.S. It's a statistic that Executive Director Heidi Hershly knows all too well as a stroke survivor.
“Life is not ever the same for you again,” said Hershly. “Sometimes you have to tweak things to get back to life. We just have to adjust and adapt.”
