Summary

SR is a 50-year-old, former professional golfer. Five years ago, he had a lower back injury, which required extensive physiotherapy. He never fully recovered and subsequently retired from the professional golfers’ tour. During this time, he had become increasingly worried about the future, about whether he could even play golf socially and became concerned about his financial security. S’s sleep became disrupted and his alcohol consumption increased, drinking bourbon (whisky) most evenings. Also, he was going through divorce proceedings initiated by his wife, following frequent arguments and a breakdown in their marriage.
