The Nazis will never think to look for her on the golf course. Must clubs won't allow Jews.

There's a massive difference between actually blind and legally blind because you have tunnel vision.  Like the difference between hard of hearing and Deaf.

"When I'm in front of the ball and I'm over it that's all I can see," the Hamilton High School senior said.

So basically, like any other golfer in the world.  You don't need peripheral vision to hit a stationary ball.

That's just not safe. Say someone hits a particularly bad shot towards her and yells four, she won't be able to hear the warning and might get hit.

Similar sentiments are said by many athletes, usually probably not so literally.  Her tunnel vision might actually help her keep her head down.  Why bother lifting your head if you're not gonna pick up the ball in flight anyways?
