Teaching Golf

Former golf pro Rob Strano offers golf instruction using American Sign Language. He played for 14 years on various tours, including the PGA. But after injuries began slowing him down, Strano decided to dedicate his time to teaching deaf children to play the game he loved – even though he has no connection to the Deaf community through family or friends. When he started his new career, Strano says he had never even met someone who was deaf. But over the years, he’s hosted many clinics alongside PGA Tour stops. The next one is in Ohio at the Memorial hosted by Jack Nicklaus. You can find more information here.
