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.”
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.

TIU4ALL and the UArizona Adaptive Golf program are proud to announce that both Kevin Holland and Norma Trujillo have joined our community golf programs with the intent of qualifying for our competitive team in the near future. Both Kevin and Norma personify the goals of TIU4ALL in building the most competitive collegiate and community program in the US today. Here’s a little info on our two newest members:
My name is Norma Trujillo and I am a mother of 3 and an artist. I am also certificated as a lead advocate for the state of Arizona, with a peer visitor certificate. I am a bilateral above the knee amputee, with a fused neck, an incomplete spinal cord and 3rd degree burns. After four years, I have come across the sport of golf and have fallen in love with everything golf!
When am not playing, I create some art pieces, hang out with my kids and husband, and I work with local leaders to advocate for disability awareness. Additional interests include: hand cycling, community walking with other amputees and participating in virtual support meetings.
The latest news on Norma is that she had a major interview on ABC that will air on Sunday May 9. Here’s the link:
We can’t begin to tell you how proud TIU4ALL and the UArizona Adaptive Golf team is to have this brave woman in our program….she’s an inspiration, she’s a competitor, and most importantly, she is FEARLESS!!! Norma will develop into a great golfer, sooner than you will believe!!!

None of the things we do would be possible without our valued partners and sponsors. Cobra/Puma golf has been nothing but exemplary in their response and creativity in providing hard/soft goods for all of our events. Vice Golf not only offers the best value in performance golf balls, but provide unhearlded customer service…finally, Sqairz Golf shoes are the most advanced game improvement offering to hit the market in years without the whole hard goods hype. Our hats off to all of our golf equipment sponsors and next year will be only bigger and better!!!
The inaugural Conquistador Paragolf Championships is officially in the books! We had a great competition, great golf in arguably rough conditions (great weather but 30-40 mph winds all three days), but most importantly we were all able to get back on the golf course together. It was great to see all of our fellow competitors/friends for the first time in over a year.
From all of us at TIU4ALL, we want to thank each and every one of you who came to Tucson this year. The week was a resounding success and gave us the start for an ongoing annual celebration of adaptive golf. Can’t wait to see you all in Mesa for the USDGA Open next month!!Conq
It’s been a great week, with getting the “Band” back together again. It was a genuine pleasure seeing everyone after an arguably rough year with no tournaments.
Sewailo has been a tough track but fair. Of course, the wind did us no favors!!! That being said, the weather has been perfect and the camaraderie even more so. As you are all aware, we ran into some speed bumps coming into the event, but nothing that can’t be overcome with faith!
After today’s final round, we will hold the awards ceremony outside the golf house. We will be making trophy presentations to the aggregate divisions as well as the overall low gross and runner-up. We will have some additional announcements prior to the ceremony.
Here are the standings after two rounds of the Conquistador Paragolf Championships
