The European Disabled Golf Association (EDGA) is partnering with miSport Coaching Ltd to offer a specially tailored online coaching platform that enables golfers with disabilities to work with an international field of appropriately trained PGA professional coaches.
The EDGA, an international non-profit organisation for golfers with disabilities, was the Official Charity of the Portugal Masters in both 2016 and 2017, raising funds to help EDGA train 20 PGA of Portugal professionals to engage with people with disabilities and encourage them to try the game.
The new partnership between miSport and EDGA begins with a pilot programme inviting a trial group of EDGA players with different impairments and golfing abilities to connect with a choice of coaches – all trained in working with disabilities – from five countries, including England, Australia, Scotland, Holland and Sweden. Here, players can benefit from a range of targeted online coaching services, weekly tips, a community forum and more (see the platform at www.edga.misport.golf).
