Sunningdale golfer named as ambassador for MS Society


























Tony Johnstone started experiencing symptoms of the disease that affects the central nervous system in 2003.

A professional golfer and Sky Sports commentator from Sunningdale who suffers from Multiple Sclerosis has been named as an ambassador for the MS Society.

At the time he was playing on golf’s European Tour and had to walk off the course several times due to his symptoms which included a loss of energy and co-ordination.

In 2004 an MRI scan confirmed he had MS and he feared he’d never play golf again. He was recommended for an MS Society funded trial of a drug called Alemtuzumab which changed his life.

The 59-year-old has now managed to keep playing golf and finished 105th at this year’s Senior Open held at Sunningdale Golf Club.

Tony said: “The MS Society is doing some incredible work with the research it’s funding so I’m really honoured to become an ambassador for the charity.”
