SHEFFIELD MP David Blunkett joined Lord Mayor John Campbell for a game of golf - without needing to step onto the fairways.

Despite his blindness, Brightside and Hillsborough Labour MP Mr Blunkett had a go on simulation equipment at the Indoor Golf Academy, Rutland Road.

The veteran politician was given a little help from golf professional Jason Proctor, who was on hand to assist with his stance and putting skills.

Coun Campbell also had a go on the equipment during the visit.

The indoor golf academy provides training in the sport for people of all ages and is open Tuesdays to Sundays, plus Monday by appointment.

The academy has a state-of-the-art simulator which accurately records performance data from ball speed to launch angles.
