(KSL News) Nearly 54 million Americans have some form of disability that limits everyday activities, but that does not mean it limits their fun.

GAIN (Golf: Accessible and Inclusive Networks) Utah golfer Andy Lamb says, "Through project GAIN I have been able to play a sport that I love that I'll have my entire life and to give me the self confidence to say, ‘You know what? I can do this.'"

Andy Lamb has been living with cerebral palsy for seven years. During that time, he's also been golfing. He learned to play through GAIN Utah, a program in which PGA and LPGA professionals teach people with disabilities to golf.

Since the program started, nearly 500 people with cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, paralysis and other disabilities have learned to play golf.
