Jim Hudson's wife came home one day and found him sitting on a couch, clutching a golf ball, with tears streaming down his face.
The former New York Jets defensive back, a star of the team's only Super Bowl championship, had played a lot of golf.
He was a single-digit handicap at the time. But he was watching the Golf Channel because he had forgotten what the ball in his hand was for, or how to play.
'You watch the life go out of someone's eyes,' his wife, Lise, said.
