The European Tour announced Dr. Haruhisa Handa as Honorary Ambassador of the “Golfers with Disability Programme” launched at the Betfred British Masters at Hillside Golf Club.
Dr Handa, Chairman of International Sports Promotion Society (ISPS) HANDA, was presented with a silver salver in recognition of his philanthropic contribution to the sport by European Tour Chief Executive Keith Pelley in Southport, as the European Tour continues its drive for inclusivity in golf.
The European Tour and ISPS HANDA have collaborated in raising the profile of disabled golfers worldwide through Dr Handa’s association with global golf events, including the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth and ISPS HANDA Melbourne World Cup of Golf, and both share the wider desire for golf to become a Paralympic sport.
