Deaf amateur golfer Allen John nearly claims European Tour title in Germany

By Ryan Herrington

2018 Allen John

A journeyman golfer winning his first European Tour title in his 17-year pro career provided plenty of theater at the Porsche European Open. But Richard McEvoy had a challenger as the sentimental choice among German golf fans at Green Eagle Golf Courses in Hamburg.

Amateur Allen John, a 30-year-old German native playing on a sponsor’s invitation, shot a closing 67 to grab a share of second place at 10 under par, one back of McEvoy, and ahead of the likes of Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Reed.

Just days after it was announced that the Gold Coast would host the 2022 World Deaf Golf Championship, the Australian men’s team is the new world champion.

The team, comprising Mark Aird, Luke Ellis, Jack Besley, Jack McLeod, Andy Honeysett and Dean Connell, was superb throughout four rounds at Carton House in Ireland, defeating runner-up the United States by a mammoth 17 after some ultra-consistent golf.

Kevin Hall, the tour's first deaf golfer, is not giving up on his chase

By Joel Beall

WebCom Tour - GolfTime is of no concern to Kevin Hall. There may be an internal clock, sure, ticking to a point of no return. But Hall can't control its perpetually moving hands, so why bother. Besides, there's work to be done. His dream, after all, is closer than it's ever been.

Hall has spent 14 years chasing it: membership on the PGA Tour. He's enjoyed a handful of starts on tour during his career, but has mostly toiled in the sport's minors.
