Toby Plasencio

Southwestern Trustee



Toby Plasencio lost his left leg below the knee as a 17-year-old in a rock climbing accident. Among his other injuries were a spine fracture, broken arm, legs and internal injuries. He spent two months in a hospital and many more months rehabilitating. He picked up golf as a way to have fun and be as competitive as before the accident. Toby went on to become a golf teaching professional and the 2009 National Amputee Golf Champion. He currently is a peer visitor and business development manager for Hanger Clinic. Toby lives just outside Ft. Worth, Texas, and enjoys hunting and fishing when he is not on the golf course. Toby is very enthusiastic to empower any amputee he meets to realize their potentials.
