The Social Golfer - The Book

See links below...

Prior to his stroke in December 2006, aged just 48, Ian was an avid golfer and had enjoyed many golfing trips to the Costas, Tenerife, Tunisia, and South Africa. Playing off eight, he still harboured dreams of retiring and trying for his card on the Seniors Tour, but these dreams were smashed just days before Christmas when he suffered a major stroke.

This book takes you through Ian’s recovery, and details how he’s heeding Bernard Hunt’s advice to “become the best damned social golfer on the planet".  Hunt went on to say "I know that there are many people out there who feel beaten by a stroke. Progress can be so slow and frustrating that it often seems easier to just give up. Golf helped me focus on my recovery and I’m hoping that my journal will help others find their own motivator."

So far Ian has raised over £30,000 for The Stroke Association, and his books have just been added to Amazon and WHSmith's online stock.
