    Mike Browne, British Royal Artillery

    Mike Browne is a veteran of the British Army serving time in the Royal Artillery. Mike broke his leg during a routine training exercise that ultimately changed his life forever. Soon after, the broken leg was riddled with infection. Twenty-two operations later, Mike made the decision to have the limb amputated to not only relieve the pain but improve his quality of life. During recovery, Mike noticed a flyer for the On Course Foundation. On Course is a UK and US based origination focused on building personal confidence and sharing experiences of injured and sick veterans through the game of golf. After starting golf in 2014, Mike progressed quickly and in 2016 turned professional. His story is not without its low points, as Mike discusses metal health throughout the podcast. It was an absolute honor to meet Mike and the rest of the warrior athletes at the 2021 Simpson Cup. For now, enjoy Mike's story!

Refreshing

Jerad from NASA was an amazing guest with an even better perspective. Thank you for having him on your show. It was inspiring and refreshing to hear a man of faith on this network. His story is motivating me to be a better husband, father, professional and man of faith. Thank you Cody and thank you NLU!

Incredibly powerful

Cody brings an amazing demeanor, partnered with guests that have gripping stories fueled by purpose and real stories of triumph and struggle. Each episode presents listeners with a true hero in their own right discussing topics with openness and honesty, leaving you with a deeper appreciation for the men and women who serve.

Further, Cody and his guests mix in golf as a unifier, a positively influence, and an outlet for the challenges of life, which regardless of who we are and what we do, applies universally.
