United States Adaptive Golf Alliance (USAGA) announces the formation of the Women’s Para-Golf Committee (WPGC) driving increased inclusion of women with disabilities in the fabric of society through the game of golf.
According to the Center on Disease Control (CDC), sixty-one (61) million or 26% of adults in the United States (1 in 4) have some form of disability. According to the same statistics, about 36 million women in the U.S. have
disabilities (1 in 4) – “and the number is growing”.
There is a proven need to include women with disabilities in the game of golf, giving them an opportunity to be included as opposed to be excluded.
