The Golf Channel features Jim Hunt, quadruple amputee and Hanger Clinic patient

Bath, N.Y., Dec. 27, 2017 – When 55-year-old Canisteo, New York resident Jim Hunt decided to take up golfing this spring, he knew it would present unique challenges, as Hunt was born without his arms below the elbow, and without his legs below the knee. But with hard work, determination, and prosthetic technology custom-designed and fit by Hanger Clinic's Erica Webster, CP, BOCO, Hunt has become a regular at his golf course. His incredible story has been featured by both a local news station and the Golf Channel.
