We are pleased to have Anthony Netto visit the Return To Golf® program. Netto’s promising golf career was cut short by a car accident in which he suffered paralysis from the waist down. As a former student of engineering, he gathered together several of his peers and created the Paramobile which enables paralyzed individuals to actually stand in order to hit a golf ball. He later founded the Stand Up & Play Foundation, traveling throughout the country working with different organizations, community centers, rehabilitation hospitals and golf courses to promote active standing therapy programs for the physically disabled. Anthony Netto is the ex-trainer of the German Disabled Golf Team, acts as an consultant for handicapped golfers worldwide, and is the initiator of the KidSwing program.
Admission to the golf clinic and open house are free to attendees, thanks to the generous support of RPM International, Inc.
