The Orthotic and Prosthetic Activities Foundation recently announced Rehab Systems Orthotics and Prosthetics hosted two First Swing Learn to Golf Clinics in Idaho on Sept. 11 and 12.
Area therapists, practitioners and golf pros were invited to learn about adaptive golf, techniques and equipment in the morning and then to work with patients during the afternoon.
Participants at a First Swing Learn to Golf Clinic hosted by Rehab Systems pause for a group shot.

“Sport and golf have been a big part of my family, and we feel it is an important part of life. First Swing was a great way for our family and our staff to share this with others,” Matt Perkins, president of Rehab Systems, said in a press release from the Orthotic and Prosthetic Activities Foundation (OPAF).
Clinics were held in Boise at Quail Hollow Golf Club and in Twin Falls at Canyon Springs Golf Club. The clinics were led by W.C. Fields, instructor for the National Amputee Golf Association (NAGA), and assisted by Bobby Mourino. Clinic participants had the opportunity to try a Solo Rider, an adaptive golf cart.
Plans are in the works for future clinics hosted by Rehab Systems next year.
