EDGA Profiles

The Golfers First Profiles came from a deep belief that everyone has a story, that is not only worth telling, but also worth sharing. Perhaps you or someone that you know is in need of a boost of inspiration or a signpost to what can be achieved.

Featured Video

The European Tour, supported by The R&A and EDGA, has made a film that will “open the eyes” of everyone to the high standard of a generation of golfers with a disability now competing against each other internationally. EDGA believes this short video and a longer 30-minute film – made at the EGA European Championship – should be seen by anyone interested in sport and health as it emphatically demonstrates that golf can offer great benefits to people with disability. 

Featured Partner - RSM

As a small token of gratitude to our very supportive partners, every month we'll be putting focus on individual partners. This month, the focus is on RSM and we offer our sincere gratitude for all of their amazing support that really is - changing lives  

RSM and EDGA
RSM’s sponsorship of EDGA extends the firm's ambitious partnership strategy within golf and supports its wider corporate and social responsibility programme. As part of the tie-up, RSM will support EDGA to get 500,000 new players with a disability to try golf for the first time. It will also play a role in supporting EDGA's longer term goal of getting disability golf accepted as an official sport at the Paralympic Games.
