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. "It's fantastic that the USGA is supporting Marianjoy in their efforts to share the game of golf with both adults and children with disabilities."

"Marianjoy's Therapeutic Golf programs make a tremendous impact on the adults who participate," said Tracy Ekstrom, CTRS, Coordinator of the Marianjoy Therapeutic Golf Program, "and our Pros and therapists are excited to include children into our program.
