Meet Mike Reeder. A former soldier who lost both legs in Vietnam, he found inspiration and purpose in golf, and began a singular mission: to become the first man to play St. Andrews while in a wheelchair.

"To go to St. Andrews, prop yourself up and hold your wheelchair stable and hit it solid enough to get around the golf course … that's pretty astounding," another golfer said. "I mean, he broke 80 at St. Andrews from a wheelchair. That's pretty amazing." That golfer's name? Jack Nicklaus.

For more on Reeder's story, go here and catch the E60 presentation on ESPN. Great stuff, and a reminder that golf's best stories often come from people you've never heard of before.
