Qualifying factors for participating in disabled golf tournaments

  • The only requirement is to decide whether the disability is severe enough to qualify for the competition based on the issue if it is really a lot more difficult for the person to play golf than anyone else.
  • Qualifying factors for participation are the types and the magnitudes of impairment with regard to leg range of motion and strength, grip, arm length, two hands, shoulder range of motion and strength, elbow range of motion and strength, back range of motion, vision, balance and neurology.
  • Major impairment in any of these functions, or in combinations, will qualify for participation.
  • If a player, previously approved, for any reason has a changed impairment, it must be reported to the authority giving the license immediately.
