The G4D Tour is making history by aligning with the prestigious PGA TOUR for the first time ever.

At the 2024 CJ CUP Byron Nelson, scheduled for April 29-30 at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas, golfers with disabilities will showcase their prowess alongside the world’s best.

This groundbreaking event, facilitated by a Strategic Alliance between the PGA TOUR and DP World Tour, marks a significant milestone for inclusivity in golf.

Operated by the DP World Tour in collaboration with EDGA, the G4D Tour has rapidly gained recognition since its inception in 2022.

Highlighting the exceptional talent within the G4D Tour, the event will feature the top eight males and two females from the World Rankings for Golfers with a Disability (WR4GD).

Competing in a stroke-play format, these athletes will captivate audiences with their skill and determination.

The G4D Tour’s mission extends beyond competition, aiming to raise awareness and inspire individuals with disabilities to pursue golf.

Qualification for the tour is based on performance in over 120 world-ranked events held globally each year, welcoming participants with physical, intellectual, or sensory disabilities.

Chris Biggins, a G4D Tour player and former US Disabled Open Golf Championship winner, expressed his excitement for the tour’s debut in the United States.

He anticipates a surge in visibility and hopes to inspire the next generation of adaptive athletes through this historic event.

Keith Pelley, CEO of the DP World Tour, commended the PGA TOUR for providing a platform to showcase the remarkable talent of G4D Tour golfers.

This collaboration amplifies efforts to promote inclusivity and grow participation in golf worldwide.

PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan echoed Pelley’s sentiments, emphasizing the honour of hosting G4D Tour athletes at THE CJ CUP Byron Nelson.

The event promises to be a memorable experience for participants, players, and fans alike, embodying the spirit of inclusivity and sportsmanship.
