Interview with Jeremy Poincenot - Blind Golf Champion Challenged Athletes
When Jeremy Poincenot turned 19 in October, 2008, he was a typical San Diego State University sophomore. He enjoyed college life, friends, his fraternity and sports, and had 20/20 vision. Over the next few months Jeremy mysteriously lost his central vision first in one eye, then the other.
At first Jeremy assumed that losing his vision meant losing the ability to play golf, the sport he’d loved all his life. He soon learned that with a guide he can still play and compete. In 2010 he shocked the field of 60 from 14 countries at the World Blind Golf Championships in England by winning with a dramatic chip-in on a playoff hole. He has continued his success and is the U.S. National B-2 Blind Golf Champion.
An unbleivable inspiration and terrific spokesperson for the CHALLENGED ATHLETES FOUNDATION.
