Nationwide golf retailer American Golf will support one of the world’s leading disability golfers, Brendan Lawlor, in his first full season as a professional. Fresh from pledging a £35,000 investment into the Rose Ladies Series that has been filling the competitive void for women professionals around the UK this summer, American Golf have taken the decision to support one of the leading exponents of disability golf as they continue their mission to drive diversity within the sport.

The partnership will see Lawlor, who was the first disability golfer to play in a European Challenge Tour event last season, wear an American Golf hat throughout the rest of his 2020 campaign.

“I can’t thank American Golf enough for the support they are providing me,” said Lawlor who signed his first professional contract with the Niall Horan owned Modest! Golf last September.

“They are a company who want to give back and are not afraid to support minority groups in golf who need it most. What they have done for ladies golf is so impressive and I hope that together we can help put disability golf firmly on the map.”

Lawlor has been making his mark around the world for several years with high profile wins while showcasing disability golf to a wider audience. His talent, both on and off the golf course has captured the imagination of American Golf who hope to help Lawlor on his journey to bring disability golf to the masses.

“We have been so impressed by Brendan and the role he is playing in encouraging more people to take-up the game of golf,” said American Golf CEO Gary Favell.

“Brendan is someone who has never allowed anything to get in his way. Not only is he a superb player, he is an inspirational character and we hope that through our support, we can help him continue to break down barriers and encourage more people from every background into this great game.”
