"Being disabled myself, I chatted with a few of the injured veterans and told them what had happened to me. I saw some of them looking back at me and I realized that golf was something they could do. That's when I thought, "if we could start a charity which teaches golf on a long-term basis with the idea of then getting them some form of employment within the golf and related industries, that if we could do that, that would be quite something". And that's where it all started." We open Season 13 with an inspirational conversation with John Simpson, Founder of On Course Foundation.
