RANCHO MIRAGE - Some Coachella Valley stroke, heart and Parkinsons Disease patients are grabbing a golf club as a unique form of physical therapy, through golf! A team of valley health care professionals have come together to offer a free monthly golf clinic for stroke and parkinson's patients.

The free golf clinic takes place the first Tuesday of every month at Country Villas Rancho Mirage Healthcare Center. Stacy Hennis, a local physical therapist, is helping patients get into the swing of things.

The clinic is also being taught by Patty Curtiss, a local LPGA golf professional and founder of an organization called Golf Rehab.

The clinic is sponsored by Country Villa, Golf Rehab and New Beginning Physical Therapy.
