Three hours after ParaGolf Canada went live Monday the visionary behind the groundbreaking adaptive online golf initiative, Todd Keirstead, received the following message:

“My spouse, an extremely avid golfer, recently became paralyzed from the waist down and feels will never be able to golf again. I am hoping by connecting with you the passion will be discovered and the opportunity to play again might again be achieved.”

They reached out to the right person. No one in this country is more capable of improving this individual’s quality of life in the wake of tragic circumstance better than Keirstead.

The globally recognized golf trick shot artist supplanted his career by becoming an advocate for the adaptive golf space and a leading voice for inclusion and diversity. The PGA of Canada member is currently working with individuals with physical disabilities and sensory disabilities, including vision impairment, plus those with spinal cord injuries, wounded veterans and first responders.

“It’s exciting to see someone who has taken the time, as Todd has, to adapt this game to anybody,” said LPGA Tour winner, Lorie Kane. Keirstead’s vision is a simple one. Anyone can play golf, no matter what their circumstance. If you’ve seen one of his exhibitions or heard him give one of his inspiring talks his passion on this subject is infectious. What you also appreciate is his confidence. Keirstead believes in transcending personal boundaries for individuals with disabilities on and off the fairway.

"It is exciting to see someone who has taken the time as Todd has, to adapt this game to anybody."

Josh Williams

"Over the last decade I’ve won multiple disabled national golf championships worldwide. I was ready to move away from competitive disabled golf until Todd Keirstead told me about his vision of creating a Canadian National ParaGolf Program. Todd’s goals of not only creating a support system for our elite athletes but also cultivating the next generation of athletes and grow the game at the grassroots level renewed my desire to stay active in disabled golf."

Danielle Kang
- LPGA Major Champion

"It is not about making birdie or pars, it is about enjoying the game and that is what you do when you first start golf. You play to have fun because you always want to give hope."
