Rory, Tommaso and me at the Player's Lounge. DPWorld Tour Championship Dubai hosting G4DTour final series.
I was not supposed to be at the DPWorld Tour Championship's Players Lounge as since covid I have been more active on the LegendsTour. However, last month, I was in Tuscany, Italy doing a project in beautiful CastelFalfi Resort when I met G4D (Golf for the Disabled) Tour player Tommaso Perrino (Disabled World N.5) whom had just won the G4D Tour leg ISPS Handa World Invitational in Irlande. As a result Tommaso qualify for the G4D final series and here I was with Tommaso at the players lounge having the same menu as Rory Mcilroy (World N.1)...
I personaly think that giving disabled top golfers the opportunity to play the same week, the same course as the best golfers in the world is a great opportunity, on top of that they can meet each other in the players lounge, on the putting green and the practice range where they can interact.
Quote from Jon Rahm winner of the 2022 DPWorld Tour Championship
"I truly think it is a wonderful thing to have something like that " I'm decently close with Disabled Juan Postigo, and to see him hit the golf ball is one of the most amazing things you'll ever see on a golf course. How good he can hit it, how far he can hit it one-legged is truly incredible.
The new look G4D (Golf for the Disabled) Tour featured a minimum of seven events, culminating in the G4D Grand Finale in Dubai. G4D tournaments is closely linked to DP World Tour tournaments – playing on the same course during the same tournament week. CaddiePlayer is welcoming Disabled to use its data statistics solutions.
"I am looking forward to the next G4D Tour Abu Dhabi Championship 2023 where I shall CaddiePlayer Tommaso Perrino. I know the course very well from my last venue back in 2019 when CaddiePlayer Richard Sterne finished second ".

DPWorld Tour Championship Rory's Press Conference Release:
Q. You achieved something you had not before by winning the FedExCup and the DP World Tour ranking in the same year, and returned to world No. 1. How proud are you of the body of work you've put together this year?
RORY McILROY: Yeah, very proud of myself. Harry (Rory's Caddie) and I were talking going up the last fairway. It seems like it's a long time since San Antonio, the Texas Open the week before Augusta this year when I was sort of struggling a little bit and made a couple of tweaks with my game and with my equipment. Went to a different golf ball. It seemed like just after that, my whole year turned around and got a ton the momentum at the Masters and just went from there.
