[May 06, 2014]  SPRINGFIELD – A golf clinic for people who have experienced a major medical or traumatic physical change – such as from an accident, brain injury or stroke – and are ready to return to the sport will be held from3:30 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, May 20.

The clinic will take place at Piper Glen Golf Course, 7112 Piper Glen Drive, Springfield, and is sponsored by Memorial Rehab Services and Piper Glen Golf Course. Golf pro Dave Schofield will work with each participant at the driving range to improve his or her golf swing.

For those who need help with balance issues or other skills, Memorial Rehab Services employees will be there to provide assistance. Chairs also will be available.

“Our goal is to help people return to a previous leisure interest that promotes overall wellness,” said Lisa Cline, recreational therapist for Memorial Rehab Services. “The golf clinic is designed to build confidence and introduce new or different playing techniques as needed. People find they are once again able to enjoy something they loved to do – just in a different way.”
