G4D Tour: Explaining eligibility 

The inaugural event of the newly named G4D (Golf for the Disabled) Tour will be staged at The Belfry, from May 2-3, ahead of the DP World Tour’s Betfred British Masters hosted by Danny Willett.

Qualification for the G4D

Players with a confirmed World Ranking for Golfers with Disability (WR4GD) can earn points in various approved events around the world.

The top ten players from the gross WR4GD ranking at predetermined dates throughout the year will receive invitations to compete on the 2022 G4D Tour schedule which features seven events, in six different countries.

Should a player be unable to accept the invitation, then the next player from the gross ranking will be invited and so on.

Players will need to provide evidence of a maximum WHS handicap of 3.4 as the courses are set up for DP World Tour events and are typically around 6,500-7,500 yards long.

Field for G4D Tour @ Betfred British Masters hosted by Danny Willett

The ten-strong field for the season-opening G4D Tour at the Betfred British Masters hosted by Danny Willett is led by WR4GD World Number One Brendan Lawlor.

The Irishman, 25, claimed a four-shot win at the EDGA (formerly the European Disabled Golf Association) Dubai season finale last year, his third victory of the campaign.

In August 2020, he became the first disabled golfer to compete on the DP World Tour in the UK Championship at The Belfry in August 2020.

He is joined by an international field which sees nine different countries represented, including English pair Kipp Poppert and Mike Browne.
