IBGA EVENTS REPORT
2014 World Blind Golf Championships
Nelson Bay Golf Club, Port Stephens, New South Wales Australia
31st May 2014
The World Blind Golf Championships took place at Nelson Bay Golf Club, Port Stephens, New South Wales Australia on Thursday and Friday, 15 and 16 May.
Over 55 starters, plus caddies, from 14 countries are expected to converge on the Port Stephens holiday town for the bi-annual championships.
The IBGA was formed to govern, sanction and provide funding for international open blind golf events. Prior to its foundation, national associations had organised their own regular open championships. Each time, these associations received substantial funding from Japanese philanthropist, Dr Handa, who was inspired to create a central funding body for these tournaments after playing golf with a blind golfer in Australia.
The winners and new World Champions are:
B1 Men – Zohar Sharon (Israel)
B2 Men – Garrett Slattery (South Africa)
B3 Men – Paul Appleyard (England)
World Champion Nett – Malcolm Elliot (Australia)
Ladies World Champion – Jenny McCallum (Australia)
