We had a guy at our club (worked in the Pro Shop) who lost a leg in a military training accident (jumping from a plane). Long story short. He was a lefty and ~ a 4 capper who was invited to play in the Outback Pro-Am in Tampa, Florida (TPC in Lutz) a few years ago.
Playing in a practice round with some of the Champion Tour guys he impressed them so much he ended up quitting his job and was sponsored by some of the Champion Tour guys to work on his game full time at the David Leadbetter Academy at Champions Gate near Disney.
Told the story to some of us one day of him practicing next to Michelle Wie and out comes Gary Player with a check for $500.00 dollars in his name.
I don't think he ever made it, but it's a great story. Last I saw of him his prosthetic leg was sponsored by Adams Golf (cool logo and all). Previously he had a Titleist sponsored leg.
I'm sure their (the Champions Tour guys) interest in him was well appreciated regardless.
