The English Deaf Golf A and B Teams took part in the 2013 European Deaf Golf Open Championships in Finland. All 8 players played in both the Team and Individual events. In the team event, the best 3 scores out of 4 contribute on day 1 and 2 to make the total team score. The England A Team found success in this event for the 1st time internationally after having won on countback from Sweden in a very tense finish. The England B Team did very well themselves having been placed 5th after day 1 but had a major fightback to finish 4th behind Denmark. 33 players took part in the Tournament and Paul Waring (Felixstowe Ferry) was our most successful golfer having taken 1st spot with 72-79.
The EDGA would like to extend enourmous thanks to Samantha Grainger and Steve Waring for showing their support over the 3 days.
