HELLERTOWN, Pa., October 1, 2019 – Moving Foreward instructors will battle it out against some of the nation’s best golfers at the United States Adaptive Golf Alliance (USAGA) Open tournament October 8-10 in Las Vegas.
As the premier event on the USAGA’s calendar, scores are “triple-weighted”—the only tournament all year to do so. The top-2 players ranked in each of 14 different Sport Classes, as well as the top-2 ranked women, at the conclusion of the USAGA Open will be named to the US Para-Golf team and serve as official members of this prestigious team for the next year.
“This is the final USAGA tournament of the season, and there’s a lot riding on it,” says Moving Foreward co-founder Adam Benza. “Being named to the US Para-Golf team would help boost Moving Foreward’s profile as well as advance our organization’s goals on behalf of adaptive golfers nationwide.”
Moving Foreward instructors Kenny Bontz, Chad Pfeifer, and Kellie Valentine will all be participating in this year’s tournament. Currently, Kenny holds the top ranking within USAGA’s G1 Sport Class and is second-ranked overall; Chad is ranked second in the G1 Sports Class and third overall; and Kellie is ranked second in the women’s G4 Sports Class and seventh overall.
