Bill Bond for Golf Digest, The man with the golf ball eye

This was one of those assignments that while I was shooting it, I still couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Feature story for Golf Digest on Bill Bond who lost his eye when he was attacked by inmates at a prison where he was a guard. He almost lost his life in the attack. During his rehab he discovered golf and fell in love with it. He loved it so much that he had a doctor make a prosthetic eye that looks like a golf ball. He also had an artist paint a scene of a man teeing off where the iris would go. Most unbelievable thing I’ve ever seen. Super nice guy with a super low handicap to boot. Read the story here.
