Kevin Hall, the top deaf golfer in the United States, has officially committed to play in the 2007 United States Deaf Golf Championships at Far Oaks Golf Club in suburban St. Louis. The competition officially starts on Tuesday July 17th with the first round. Hall, from Cincinnati, OH and a former standout at Ohio State University and the Big Ten Champion in 2004, will be competing for the first time in the national championships.
"I was very excited to get the email from him yesterday," said Tournament Director Rob Strano. "Not only do we have the top 10 players in our Deaf Golf Rankings, but now we have the most accomplished Deaf Professional Golfer on the planet coming to make this the best field ever for the national title." Hall has competed recently on the PGA, Nationwide and Hooters Tours. Last year he was a sponsors invitee to Jack Nicklaus' Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Columbus, OH. Kevin played this week on the Nationwide Tour, again in Columbus, on a sponsors exemption and missed the cut shooting 77-73. He will arrive on Sunday evening and practice at Far Oaks on Monday in preparation for the championship start on Tuesday.
The championships will be played July 17-20 at Far Oaks Golf Club. Tee times start at 7:30 in the morning each day. Admission is free to all spectators during the tournament.
