David Windsor

David Windsor, PGA of America Class A Member, is considered one of the country’s foremost experts in teaching adaptive golfers (individuals with physical, cognitive and/or sensory impairments), so they may learn, play and enjoy the sport to enhance their quality of life.  He has been instructing adaptive golf classes every week for the last 18 years, introducing or in many instances, re-introducing the game as a means of therapy, for those in recovery to accelerate healing and inviting anyone to “experience the possible” and enhance their lives.

Gaining extensive coaching knowledge and program experience in these processes, Windsor developed the Adaptive Golf Academy in 2006 (www.AdaptiveGolfAcademy.com), as the education platform to empower PGA/LPGA Professionals and Teachers across the country to learn best practices on coaching this deserving population. Through Adaptive Golf Coach/Program Workshops, Teachers and Therapy Professionals from across the country come together to learn, share and apply a variety of adaptations in becoming a confident trained adaptive golf coach to serve their communities.

David's dedication to teaching individuals of all ages and abilities is very evident, having been the recipient of a PGA Section special award a combined seven times across both the North Florida and Georgia Sections of the PGA, to include: "Teacher of the Year," "Junior Golf Leader" and the "Patriot Award.” In 2015, David became the recipient of the PGA of America’s National “Patriot Award,” in recognition of his personification of patriotism through the game, having served thousands of injured and disabled Military Veterans of all generations and their families with recurring adaptive golf programs with VA hospitals.

After 16 years in Sarasota, FL, David now resides in Atlanta, GA serving as Director for the Georgia State Golf Association’s Adaptive Golf Program, developing recurring, impactful adaptive golf clinics and experiences statewide while sharing this model during his AGA workshops for other state organizations to implement.
