Deaf Golf

Southeastern Deaf Golfers Association Open wraps up 49th edition

newspaper story, as abbreviated

Dan Hall didn’t get a chance to play at Totteridge golf course this week
in the 49th annual Southeastern Deaf Golfers Association Open.

Back surgery prevented him from playing for the 21st time.

But Hall still was at the course watching his 93 friends compete and
heckling them with hand signs.

“Camaraderie is what brings the golfers to the tournament,” Hall said.
“Most of the golfers don’t care about their scores, they just want to be
with friends and get away for a while.

“There are a few guys that want to win and shoot well. Most just love to
play.”

Hall was following closely the match between Tim Dapp of The Villages in
Florida and Michael Mabashov of Frederick, Md. They were tied with nine
holes left before Mabashov pulled away for the win.

Dapp, 59, could be playing in the senior division, Hall said.

“Tim likes a challenge, that’s why he plays in the open division.”

Those two and James Kim of Las Vegas, Nev. were playing in the final
group. The trio will represent the U.S. team in the World Deaf Golf
Championship in Ireland in July.

Dapp has won the Southeastern Deaf Golfers Association Open four times,
and Mabashov has won four of the last five years.

Scott Davidson, who lives in North Carolina, won the senior division
Thursday. Davidson recorded a rare double-eagle during Wednesday’s second
round on the 425-yard par-5 fifteenth hole.

random deafsports thoughts

Dan Hall (see the golf story) transferred to Gallaudet as
a junior. He wanted to play baseball but felt his skills
were not good enough and so, did not sign up to play.

He watched some Gallaudet games and realized he was wrong;
he felt he was better than some of the players on the team.

As a senior, he came out for his only season in baseball,
and was a vital starter at shortstop.

After Gallaudet he played shortstop for the MWAD softball
team for many years.

The voice of University of Tennessee sports

John Ward, not deaf, passed away recently. When
he was younger he was the voice of University of
Tennessee sports (especially football and basketball).
The Vols fans loved to hear what he had to say.

He grew up near the campus of Tennessee School
for the Deaf. His father had a building named
after him – the Ward Building. His mother taught
at the deaf school for over 40 years. For these
reasons, John knew what Tennessee School for
the Deaf was all about – and the deaf school
had strong teams in football and basketball
during the twenties and thirties.

Yet – John only saw one sporting event on the
TSD campus over the years.

And never would he write about or make a mention
of TSD sports.

And even a TSD graduate attended University of
Tennessee and became the sports editor of the
campus newspaper! Did John know him?

Always a mystery!
