I certainly feel bad for them because of their pyhsical conditions. I feel badly for all handicapped people. The fact that they are able to get out and compete is remarkable, to say the least and they should be commended for that. But as far as prize money goes, it all boils down to sponsorship which ties directly to the number of fans who attend sporting events. I seriously doubt that thousands of fans attend these events.
Scott, have you seen the handicapped guy in the wheelchair at our club who comes in and takes lessons? Phenominal athlete! The way he gets around in that chair is amazing and he hits the ball nice.
