TINGLES. GOOSE BUMPS. SOMETHING. I was moved by photos of Ken Green being fitted with a prosthetic leg and trying it out for the first time. Green is the 51-year-old Champions Tour golfer who lost his brother, girl friend and dog in a June highway accident that occurred when his RV blew a tire. Later, his right leg was amputated.
Now Green is trying to put his life back together. Or at least start moving forward again. He will do it with a prosthetic leg, and hopes to play golf again. Click below for photos from The Connecticut Post:

“Well, the way I’ve looked at this is, I have a pretty good faith in God and my belief is that if you believe in God you shouldn’t be too upset over the fact that you’ve lost three of your best friends on the planet. They’re having a hell of a lot more fun right now than I am, I can tell you that,” Green told The Connecticut Post.
“I’m assuming that it’s through golf that I have to go out and try to accomplish some things that haven’t been done and make people aware of certain things. So, in that sense, it’s given me a desire and a motivation to do it and I have to do it.”
