For Immediate Release
To All TIU Shootout 2020 Participants, Sponsors and Vendors
As you all are aware, we are once again facing a worldwide health issue that is having drastic effects on every person, every industry, and every segment of life. Whether you feel that this issue has been sensationalized, politicized, blown out of proportion by the media or that it is truly a pandemic of epic proportions, the fact remains, this is a serious situation.
It is our belief at TIU, that while we haven’t been effected here in Southern Arizona like many others world wide, it is only right that we treat the situation with the respect and caution that it deserves. We therefore have decided to postpone the April 25th 2020 TIU Shootout at Sewailo (golf tournament benefitting the UArizona Adaptive Golf Program). We are currently looking at dates in May and beyond that will not be in conflict with other planned events however, we will evaluate the ongoing health issues on a weekly basis and will confirm dates when we feel we have a better handle on when it will be safe to conduct the benefit. At this time, we don’t anticipate having to cancel the event, but we do want to state that while this would be a highly unlikely scenario, it is out there as an option should conditions at that time dictate such an action. If we err, it will be on the side of caution. We will be opening more tee times, sponsorship opportunities and other ways you can assist in making this community effort for adaptive sports a success. We will be updating the website at http://www.tiushootout2020.com on a weekly basis with benefit information as well as well as tips to keep your game sharp while we weather this storm, so bookmark the page to stay informed as we move forward. Also, please feel free to share with your friends who would like to get involved in a worthwhile community effort to assist Adaptive Golf in Tucson.
Finally, we would like to thank the support team at UArizona, our sponsors, and the tournament committee. Without your help, this great event would not be possible.

Presentation to Chad NeSmith for first place B1 National champion.
In the first adaptive golf event of the year, the USAGA Paralympic International, Jesse Williamson, Danny Acosta, and Chris Schmidt represented the UArizona Adaptive Golf Program as champs. Jesse/Danny played well and showed the perseverance that personifies this program. Chris did not play due to the fact he was assisting in the running of the tournament as a representative of TIUTP, who was responsible for producing the tournament. This was but the first of many competitions that the team will compete in as we continue to grow the program. Below is a video of the tournament as well as some select shots of the competitors.
University of Arizona Adaptive Athletics Program to launch first ever Adaptive Golf program.
The University of Arizona Adaptive Athletics program, already the largest in the nation supporting six wheelchair sports has announced its first golf tournament to help raise money to create the first ever Adaptive Golf program in the USA.
Our goal, is to provide top level education and sporting experience for any athlete with a physical disability that wants to attend our University. Golf has a rich history in Tucson and at our University so it makes sense that we support adaptive golf here at the University. Adaptive Golf is played by amputees, by people with Spinal Cord Injuries, cognitive disabilities and the Visually Impaired. We can and will support their educational and athletic goals with community support.
To start the program, Adaptive Athletics is teaming up with Tee it Up Tour Productions which promotes adaptive golf throughout the USA and will be hosting the Inaugural TIU Shootout Benefit Tournament which will be held on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at Sewailo Golf Club.
