Golf in the Special Olympics is taking place at the moment in Los Angeles and what a fantastic movement it is. When the World Summer Games came to Ireland in 2003, we saw first hand the massive scale on which it operates to provide sport and enjoyment for millions across the world.

Many people say the reason Jordan Spieth seems wise beyond his 22 years, is the influence of his sister Ellie who was born with a neurological disorder.

There's a great piece on ESPN about the relationship between Jordan and his sister.

"Ellie always thought her brothers won at everything, so there's no way they were allowed to be down around her. No way. Jordan realizes this isn't real life at the Masters. Trying to sit around and have dinner when his sister doesn't want to eat when everybody else is eating and has a fit, that's real life."
"I really love when she's able to be out there, love spending time with her," Spieth said. Even when they are apart, Jordan FaceTimes Ellie and trades video messages with her and the rest of his family. 

So let's all celebrate Special Needs today and know that all the trying times will be balanced by golden moments
