WALLINGFORD– The Travelers Championship might be just over two weeks away, but the GHO was Monday. No, not the Greater Hartford Open–we’re talking about the Gaylord Hospital Open.
“I never thought I would play again,” said George Eldridge, a Marine vet who injured himself in a training exercise decades ago and had to have his leg amputated three years ago. Eldridge plays golf sitting down, thanks to an adaptive cart provided by Gaylord. “It’s unbelievable that I am out here doing this stuff, it’s awesome,” Eldridge said.
