Video: Kevin Hall, Not Just Any Sponsor Exemption

Kevin Hall is recipient of the annual exemption given to a minority golfer, a spot in the Genesis Open that helped Harold Varner early in his career. Now named after Charlie Sifford (after a dispute had his name removed), Hall is a 34-year-old former Big 10 champion who lost his hearing at age 2.

KCBS 2 in LA filed this excellent feature on Hall. Thanks reader DS.

Great that he is playing.

I think it is odd that there are loads of blind golfers, but in almost 30 years of walking on, I have only been paired with deaf golfers twice-- there were 2 of them, and both times I got teed up it was the same 2 guys- we all had a laugh about that!

It was at Lions Muni in Austin BTW.
