Ballinasloe’s Aidan Grenham will make his G4D debut when he joins Conor Stone next week in Singapore as the G4D Tour @ Singapore Classic becomes the first event on the circuit to be played in the Far East.

Grenham was part of the Irish team that romped to a 25-shot win at the European Team Championships last year and first voiced his G4D goals when he finished runner-up at the inaugural Irish Open for Golfers with a Disability at Roganstown.

“That’s the goal alright,” said Grenham of his G4D ambition.

“We’ve seen what Brendan’s [Lawlor] been able to do and although we have a ways to go to catch up with him – he’s a phenomenal player – it’s definitely something to strive for.

“The three of us on the team are definitely looking to try and get into the top-10 and get an invite into a couple of G4D events and hopefully we can kick on from there.”

A powerful golfer, Grenham lost his right leg in an accident in Boston six years ago, falling from some 30-feet and shattering the nerves before an immediate amputation was needed.

He was first made aware of the EDGA Tour through another member at Ballinasloe in September 2021 but waited until 2022 to make his debut. The Ballinsaloe man’s positive attitude has ensured his lost leg has never held him back, especially on the golf course

“Not at all,” he laughed last year. “Seeing the ball travel 300-yards in the air on average is nice alright!

“I started playing golf when I was around 10 but gave it up for a couple of years and got back to it when I was 20 maybe. I’m back on it about four years on the prosthetic leg and thankfully still hitting it well.”

The G4D Tour @ Singapore Classic will be the third event of the Tour’s second season, following on from its success in 2022 as the world’s best golfers with a disability compete on the same golf courses in the same week as DP World Tour players.

Carton House man Conor Stone will hope to bounce back from an eighth place finish at the Hero Cup event in January but will face stiff competition as Englishman Kipp Popert, currently Number One on the World Rankings for Golfers with a Disability (WR4GD), returns to the golf and will be seeking a second victory of the campaign after winning the season-opening Australian All Abilities Championship in December.

In addition to the action on the course, Popert will also lead a clinic with youths from the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore as the DP World Tour and EDGA seek to build further awareness of golf for the disabled.
