GOLFE - - SPECIAL REPORT -

The Por­tu­gal Masters has raised 25,000 eu­ros for adapted golf, an all-in­clu­sive vari­ant that Turismo de Por­tu­gal and Turismo do Al­garve have of­ten sup­ported through some of the most im­por­tant events of EGDA, the Euro­pean Adapted Golf As­so­ci­a­tion, held in the Al­garve. The EDGA is an in­ter­na­tional non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion for golfers with dis­abil­i­ties. Dur­ing the 11th Por­tu­gal Masters, in ad­di­tion to ev­ery day when spec­ta­tors can con­trib­ute to the cause, on Satur­day, the penul­ti­mate day of the tour­na­ment, there was a morn­ing clinic with adapted golfers to ex­plain to fans with dis­abil­i­ties how they can eas­ily play golf. Later that af­ter­noon, there was a com­pe­ti­tion in which a Euro­pean Tour star played with one of the most re­spected ath­letes on the EDGA cir­cuit. The cho­sen for­mat was ‘green­somes’, on the 18th hole of the Dom Pe­dro Vic­to­ria Golf Course in Vilamoura.

OPor­tu­gal Masters an­gar­iou 25 mil eu­ros para o golfe adap­tado, vari­ante in­clu­siva que o Turismo de Por­tu­gal e o Turismo do Al­garve têm apoiado fre­quente­mente através de al­guns dos mais im­por­tantes even­tos da EGDA, a As­so­ci­ação Eu­ropeia de Golfe Adap­tado, re­al­iza­dos no Al­garve. A EDGA (Euro­pean Dis­abled Golf As­so­ci­a­tion) é uma or­ga­ni­za­ção in­ter­na­cional sem fins lu­cra­tivos para golfis­tas com defi­ciên­cia. Du­rante o 11º Por­tu­gal Masters, para além de to­dos os dias os es­pec­ta­dores poderem con­tribuir para a causa, no sábado, o penúl­timo dia de prova, houve uma clínica mati­nal com craques do golfe adap­tado a ex­pli­carem a fãs com defi­ciên­cias como po­dem praticar facil­mente a modal­i­dade. Nesse mesmo dia, ao fim da tarde, houve uma com­petição de ex­ibição, em pares, na qual uma es­trela do Euro­pean Tour jo­gava com um dos atle­tas mais con­ceitu­a­dos do cir­cuito da EDGA. A modal­i­dade es­col­hida foi ‘green­somes’, no bu­raco 18 do Dom Pe­dro Vic­to­ria Golf Course, em Vilamoura.
