Golf for Deaf Children

A golf program in Destin, Florida for the deaf got its start in church. After Rob Strano retired from the PGA Tour, he met Donna Pierson at his church. The sign language instructor inspired him to reach out to children with hearing loss. After taking ASL classes, Strano held his first deaf golf camp was held in Pensacola in 2003 with more than a dozen children. He now counts more than 1800 deaf children among his students. He may the only pro in the world teaching deaf golfers. His next free camp is set for Jackson, Mississippi in two weeks. For more information click here.
