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.
"One of the industry leaders, the PGA of America, is a supporter of the USAGA and recognizes the important impact the WPGC can have on the future of golf. We invite you to join us as well. www.usaga.org"
