WHEATON, Ill., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The United States Golf Association (USGA) awarded a $20,000 matching grant to Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital in Wheaton, Illinois, to support Marianjoy's Therapeutic Golf Program and the creation of a golf program at Marianjoy for children with disabilities.

"For over 10 years, the USGA has supported programs that bring the game of golf to persons with disabilities," said Ed Stevenson, a PGA Golf Pro who leads the Winter Therapeutic Golf Clinics at Marianjoy.
