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.

With scores of 71, 66 and 68 over the final three days at Highland Oaks (Dothan, Ala.), Hall finished T-10 to advance to the final stage of Q School next month.

Deaflympicsgb's Steven Cafferty: “Golf was my saviour"

By Andy Roberts

Steven Cafferty may have fulfilled a childhood dream this summer when picking up a bronze medal at the Deaflympics, but he's not prepared to stop there. Far from it.

Cafferty, 27, may spend the majority of his days custom fitting and selling golf clubs as a sales advisor at American Golf, but when he is not out on the course rolling home birdies, you can find him doing everything he can to raise money to fund Deaf Golf and Deaf Sport in general
