Power Tee Guest Blog with John Bell
My name is John Bell and I’m here to tell you my story and how Power Tee helped me along the way. In 2011 I was involved in a traumatic motorcycle accident, leaving my left leg amputated above the knee. I was also left with a crushed skull, broken back and many other health issues. This accident though, did not stop me from finding my true passion.
Realizing I would never be able to go back to the job I loved, as an operator of heavy equipment, I knew it was time to focus on what mattered most, family and friends. I found a new passion for helping others who have gone through the loss of a limb. Working with organizations like the Never Say Never Foundation, U.S. Adaptive Golf Alliance, and local Amputee Support Groups, I have found other ways to adapt to the new lifestyle and how to stay positive day in and day out.
In 2017 I found Power Tee at Sweet Swing Driving Range in Homosassa, Florida. I will say that Power Tee is the main reason for me getting back in the game. With being an above knee amputee, I had to completely change my golf swing, and with Power Tee I was able to save all my energy not loading the ball on to the tee and focus on my swing and stance. I have been using Power Tee a lot lately while training. I used Power Tee to help prepare me for any upcoming golf events I have, and it really allows me to focus in on my swing. I have told all golfers in the adaptive community if they can find a Power Tee facility near them to get to it, if they don’t have one nearby tell their range or club to get some Power Tees on the range!
