Yesterday, at Carlsbad’s TaylorMade Golf headquarters three young amputees were treated like PGA pros. They received complete sets of golf clubs and swing training with the world renowned golf coach Jim Flick, according to a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

This day was dubbed “Operation: Game On!” by Tony Perez, the San Diegan who had the idea for the project. Perez, the president of the local Pin Pals golf program for underprivileged youth, is a Vietnam veteran who wanted to do something special for wounded military personnel.

Thanks, Tony and TaylorMade for setting such a great example for all of us.
