Sam Stoddart stepped on a pressure plate while leading a patrol in Southern Afghanistan in 2012. The pressure plate triggered an IED blast that severely damaged his left foot and ankle. He spent the next eight years fighting pain, going through additional surgeries, and altering his quality of life before he made the decision to amputate. During recovery, Sam began taking courses through the On Course Foundation, a UK and US based origination focused on building personal confidence and sharing experiences of injured and sick veterans through the game of golf. This is his story. Enjoy!
