Wrist, arm disabilities lead to the invention of new way to play golf

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Nick Manou, of New York, wasn't going to let disability keep get him down. He loves playing golf and said without his favorite sport, he was depressed. So he invented Shoe Golf.

It pretty much sounds exactly how it's played. You just kick the ball, but Manou took his idea to some engineers and they came up with the concept of a shoe attachment that allows for more ways to kick the ball.

"We put a couple screws in the bottom and the attachment comes up, around the bottom, up through the face where you connect your sh-lub heads, and it comes up here and you lace it into your shoes and you're good to go,” Manou explains.

Nick suffers from a variety of wrist and arm ailments that leave him without the ability to grab or hold anything, like a golf club.

He hopes to make Shoe Golf a thriving business, selling sets, giving lessons and starting leagues.
