PGA Pros Tee Up Sporting Chance For Disabled PGA professional Craig Thomas, Lead Disability Coach for Staffordshire County Golf Partnership

The PGA is encouraging disabled people inspired by the Paralympics to tee it up and give golf a go. In the past four months more than 40 PGA professionals have undertaken a specially designed academy programme equipping them with the skills to teach golfers with a range of disabilities. And following the success of the Paralympics, The PGA, which supports a number of initiatives to grow golf at grass roots level, is eager to alert disabled people to the opportunities in golf. PGA professional Craig Thomas, Lead Disability Coach for Staffordshire County Golf Partnership, has played a key role in tutoring many of his fellow PGA pros at workshops to equip them with the knowledge and confidence to teach golf to all people no matter their physical impairment including blind people. “From personal experience and seeing others who have given it a try, it is remarkable how much of an impact golf can make,” he said. “I have been fortunate to coach many blind and disabled people and golf gives them an opportunity to do something new, it gives them hope and encouragement and with more PGA professionals adept at dealing with the unique challenges of disability, the sport is becoming much more accessible. The PGA academy programme, launched earlier this year at Celtic Manor in conjunction with ISPS Handa, has resulted in more than 500 free lessons for disabled golfers across the UK. “As we have seen in the Paralympics, disability needn’t be a barrier to playing sport and through the skills of our PGA professionals, many disabled people have a marvelous opportunity to get out and try something new and most importantly which is fun and enjoyable.” “Any disabled people who have been inspired to try sport by the Paralympics I would encourage to contact The Essex Golf Partnership to find out the opportunities available.” The Essex Golf Partnership provides opportunities for disabled people to try golf. Please contact directly PGA Coaches Tom Hide, 07940 510450 or Sarah Graves 07806 260819 who will be more than happy to help. .You can also use the find a Pro section on
