13 players represented England Deaf Golf at the 2014 World Deaf Golf Championships, Grand Traverse Resort, Traverse City, Michigan. 6 men (Stally, Burris, Anderson, Forrest, Le Page, Waring) competed in the Team event in which the best 4 scores out of 6 contributed to the Team Total. The team found a much improved performance from the 2012 WDGC in Japan finishing a very respectable and well fought 2nd place behind the Americans by 14 strokes.
Michael Burris fought well with 79, 73, 79, 75 to finish 3rd on the podium behind Hans Elgaard (Denmark) and Jack Besley (Austrailia). Paul Waring also fought well to place 4th overall. Further results can be found here.
England Deaf Golf would like to extend a grateful thanks to the travelling supporting party of 14 who gave the team a much needed boost.
