Norfolk blind golfer heading to World Championships

WATCH: ITV Anglia's Sports Correspondent Donovan Blake went to meet Danny and Di Daniels.

A former RAF engineer from Norfolk has earned a place at the World Blind Golf Championships to represent England.

Danny Daniels, 82, learnt to play the sport after macular degeneration left him with partial sight in his right eye.

His wife Di is his caddy and guide - talking him through club placement and direction.

She said: "You've got to learn how your golfer plays so that you know where to put them.

"You've got to be able to read the green for them, they can't look at a green and say the ball's going to go right or left so I have to do that."

The couple are members of Barnham Broom Golf Club, and are now hoping to jet off to South Africa for the World Championships in September.

They are now trying to raise funds to make the trip out there, with Danny saying he is "desperate" to play.

He said: "When it comes at this age, that you can get to [the World Championships] by merit, and you'll be playing with other golfers - I'm desperate to go."
