Tony Bennett from PGAs of Europe Goes Extra Miles for EDGA

12.38am 18th March 2014 - People

EDGA websiteTony Bennett, Director of Education at The PGAs of Europe, and his wife Sue have been cycling across Portugal and covering over 1,200km in aid of the European Disabled Golf Association.

The first 2014 fund raising initiative for The European Disabled Golf Association (EDGA) started in Lisbon. As the current President of EDGA, Tony Bennett and his wife are on a challenge to play one hole of golf at 72 courses

Several days into the trip Tony says, “It seemed like a good idea at Christmas time after a couple of seasonal drinks, but not such a good one yesterday as we approached the end of the fourth, of this six day stage day. Only three more stages to go. My wife Sue is doing great with the ride and is coping well with moving her fully loaded bike through some pretty undulating terrain.

“The real reason for committing to this challenge is so that The European Disabled Golf Association will be able to contribute to funding some special projects and events which help individuals with physical, sensory or intellectual impairments to experiment with golf and which to help increase competitive opportunities for this group of golfers.”

Readers of who wish to support Tony and Sue’s initiative can donate through the website.
