Mike Gibson's Titleist Inspiration

Mike Gibson with PGA Tour Pro Nick Watney at 2009 Deutsche Bank Championship

Mike Gibson will tell you that "yes, he's special - but so is everyone else!" An honorary member of the PGA of America, Mike lost his arm in a tragic boating accident when he was 14. He refers to the accident as, "his longest day" but chooses to embrace life and live, not delve deep into depression or self-pity. When one comes in contact with Mike, it's like one of those chance encounters in life where you leave thinking - I just met one of those "one in a million people!" Mike's positive dynamic approach to life and golf can't help but inspire those around him to the infinite possibilities that life has to offer - if your willing. Mike's a Nationally Certified Club Fitter and PGA Teaching Professional at Harmon Golf and Fitness in Rockland, MA. He's got a new and exciting project in conjunction with Titleist Golf and the Golf Channel that has just launched, entitled "Titleist Inspiration." Mike and 2 time heart transplant survivor and PGA Tour Professional, Erik Compton talk about their paths in life through their golf game and the inspirational life lessons that they've learned. They touch upon the fact that golf can inspire others as well, no matter what your circumstances. Mike told me that, "the Titleist Inspiration video series started out as a PSA for the Golf Channel and is now blooming into something bigger." Not surprisingly, Mike's just enjoying the ride and goin with the flow, embracing this newest endeavor to the fullest - where ever it may lead him! Titleist has set up an interactive Facebook Fan Page where one can post their own stories of inspiration at www.facebook.com/pages/Goldie-Bounce-Golf/89608275059?ref=ts#/Titleistinspiration?v=wall&ref=ts and you can also find Titleist Inspiration at www.titleist.com/inspiration
