Episode 15 - Local Blind Golf Champion Launches New Book

Apr 25, 02:56 PM

We were delighted to be joined by blind golf champion and now local Ballymena celebrity Drew Cochrane as he talked about his early life, sight loss diagnosis, subsequent depression and how he went on to discover the sport of blind golf, something he credits with saving his life.  

Drew talks candidly about his darkest days and how he went onto pen his life story in his book – From the Carry Row to Tokyo.   

Drew urges people to speak to someone about their mental health and take up a hobby or sport that focuses your mind, motivates you and connects you with likeminded people.  

If you would like to speak to someone about your sight loss, or about getting involved in the sport of blind golf, you can phone our Helpline on: 0303 123 9999.
