What is my Sports Classification ?

Sport Class G1: The golfers have an impairment affecting one leg, for example an

amputation above the knee. They may use a prosthesis or golf on one leg.

Sport Class G2: Golfers in this sport class include those with impairments in the lower parts

of one leg, but with less impact on golfing compared to G1. Typical examples are

amputations above the ankle or loss of muscle control in one leg or leg length difference.

Sport Class G3: This sport class includes golfers with an impairment in both legs, such as

muscle weakness in both legs or double amputation.

Sport Class G4: The golfers in this sport class have impairments affecting at least one arm.

For any stroke played during a round of golf: at the initiation of the stroke through striking of

the ball, there can only be one intentional point of contact on the club and no intentional

contact to the arm holding the club. Any intentional aid from an artificial appliance,

prosthetic, anchoring the club or part of the impaired arm is not allowed as a second point of

contact. This category includes limb deficiency, impaired passive range of motion and

impaired muscle power related to the arm.

Sport Class G5: The golfers in this sport class have impairments affecting at least one arm.

For any stroke played during a round of golf: at the initiation of the stroke through striking of

the ball, this class is allowed to have two points of intentional contact on the club or contact

on the arm holding the club. Any intentional aid from an artificial appliance, prosthetic,

anchoring the club or part of the impaired arm is allowed as a second point of contact. This

category includes limb deficiency, impaired passive range of motion and impaired muscle

power related to the arm.

Sport Class G6: This sport class is designated for athletes with impairments in both arms that

prohibit them full use of the golf club. Golfers, for example, have missing hands or cannot

grip firmly the club properly. Therefore, you may see them using an adaptive golf tool.

Sport Class G7: This sport class is designed for golfers who have an impairment in arms and

legs. Some of the G7 golfers have mild coordination problems in all extremities. Others have

amputations affecting at one arm and one leg.

Sport Class G8: Athletes with Neurological Conditions and Coordination Impairments.

Abnormal increase in muscle tension and a reduced ability of a muscle to stretch, lack of coordination of muscle movements, unbalanced, involuntary movements and a difficulty in

maintaining a symmetrical posture due to a neurological condition, such as cerebral palsy,

brain injury or multiple sclerosis.

Sport Class G9: Golfers have an impairment that limits their leg and trunk function. They

would be unable to sit without supporting himself or herself with the arms, for example due

to paraplegia.

Sport Class G10: Golfers in this sport class have near to normal trunk control.

Sport Class G11: These athletes have a very low visual acuity and/or no light perception.

 

Sport Class G12: Athletes have a higher visual acuity/ higher than athletes competing in

the G11 sport class & a visual acuity higher than 20/600 with some light perception

 

Sport Class G13: Athletes have the least severe visual impairment eligible for Paralympic

sport. They have the highest visual acuity and/or a visual field of less than 20 degrees radius.

(To ensure safety all G11 & G12 golfers must use a caddy, while a G13 may use a caddy)

Sport Class G14: Athletes with short stature compete in this sport class

Sport Class G15: Athletes with an Intellectual disability which has certain limitations in

cognitive functioning and skills, including communication, social and self-care skills. Level 5

Special Olympics North America golf athletes. Examples- Athletes with Downs Syndrome/
