Dates for the TIU4ALL Shootout and The Conquistador Paragolf Championships Announced

Conquistador Paragolf Dates announced

Today, TIU4ALL announced that the 2022 Conquistador Paragolf Championships will be held on April 19-21 in Tucson, AZ.  This year’s tournament will feature over 60 world ranked adaptive golfers playing 54 holes at stroke play.  Golf course negotiations are currently underway and an official venue will be announced in the next few weeks.  New to this year’s tournament will be the inclusion of a “hole in one” prize on one of the par 3’s (in all three rounds) whereby if a participant gets a hole in one, they win a 2022 vehicle (TBD) from Jim Click Automotive, the largest auto dealer in Southern Arizona and a cash prize that will be split between the participant and TIU4ALL.  Also, due to the lifting of COVID restrictions (as of today’s date) we will be holding a formal awards dinner for the championship.  This will be a coat/tie event that we hope everyone will want to attend.

Immediately following the Conquistador on April 22 will be the fourth annual TIU4ALL Shootout, to benefit adaptive sports in Southern Arizona with the bulk of the net proceeds going to the University of Arizona Adaptive Athletic program.  Unique to this tournament will be the traditional “hole in one” prizes on every par three in the round.  As usual, we will have bespoke prizes on every hole as well as some unique hidden prizes this year.  Following the Shootout, will be our “off the hook” tailgate buffet and award ceremony.

Also on site during the Shootout and the Conquistador will be the “Millions for Tucson” booth presented by Click Automotive.  Since 2003, Jim Click, Jr. (our hero and major benefactor) has initiated ten raffles* for charities in the Greater Tucson area and has donated a vehicle as the raffle prize*. Eligible 5Mr Click 201301c3 charities have been encouraged to sell tickets for the raffle with each charity keeping 100% of the proceeds raised. The raffle has been one of the many way the Click family has been able to give back to the community that has given his family so much since they came to Tucson in 1974.

Great feature story on the USDGA and an awesome group of golfers

G.O.A.T., what is it really?

So much talk of the G.O.A.T. in the world today. Who was the greatest of all time in this or that… The truth is most people attempting to put that label on someone, fail to understand the true definition of greatness—selfless exceptionalism. The selfless part eliminates a majority of the nominated. Each of us has a choice each day to seek greatness. And at the end of the day our legacy will be validated through the lives we change—the lives into which we literally breathe life.

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.”

– Philippians 2:3 (NIV)

Shoutout to our major sponsors, Cobra/Puma and Sqairz

A big thank you to two of our largest equipment sponsors, Cobra-Puma and Sqairz Golf Shoes. Without their support the TIU4ALL and the UArizona Adaptive Golf team wouldn’t have made such impressive improvements in a very short amount of time. From club fittings to the red/white/blue “Distance” shoes, we not only look good, but we’re collectively playing better.
