Golfing aidThe client, an eleven-year-old boy with a multi-function artificial arm on his left side, wished to be able to play golf.

A semi-circular adapter was manufactured in easily formed plastic, shaped to the contour of the golf club’s shaft. A rod was riveted to the adapter and threaded at one end so that the combination could be married-up with the client’s artificial arm. By gripping the adapter firmly against the club’s shaft with his right hand, he was able to address the ball and hit it.

As was demonstrated on the BBC TV programme “Lifeline”, the client has developed a swing that many would envy and has made considerable progress in the ancient game.
