The Canadian blind golfers tournament

With club in hand, hole in sight and ball teed up, Canadians love to play on the greens of the golf course. Though Mark Twain deemed golf "a good walk spoiled," supporters are passionate about the sport and say that it teaches etiquette, discipline and an unending quest for self-improvement over frustration. The CBC has chronicled our love of the game from coast to coast, in sun and in snow.

Blind golfer Phil Lederhouse discusses how he plays the game.
