European Tour star Paul Waring is set to take on a new role as EDGA Ambassador, officially partnering with the international body that encourages people with disability to thrive through golf.
The 35-year-old won his maiden European Tour title, the 2018 Nordea Masters in Sweden, in his 200th appearance on Tour and has always been popular with his fellow players and fans alike.
Born in Birkenhead, Waring was on home territory when he first met and played with EDGA golfers, including our every own Brendan Lawlor during the 2019 Betfred British Masters Pro-Am at Hillside Golf Club.
EDGA players Caroline Mohr of Sweden, Spain’s Juan Postigo Arce and Dundalk’s Lawlor all said they were inspired by Waring’s encouragement and advice during their Pro-Am fourball.
The former English Amateur Champion would be similarly supportive of EDGA players and volunteers during the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open, and the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai also in 2019. During both weeks, RSM supported EDGA to offer free golf lessons from PGA professionals to all spectators with a disability present at the Rolex Series tournaments.
“I am delighted to become a formal ambassador for EDGA,” Waring said. “I have had the opportunity to meet and play with a number of their players and I am extremely impressed by their talent. I am honoured to be a part of their journey and to support the work that EDGA is doing to increase the opportunities for those with disabilities within golf.”
