The History of the Fightmaster Cup

The inaugural Fightmaster Cup took place from September 11th to 14th 2008 at The Cardinal Club, Simpsonville, Kentucky near Valhalla Golf Club, the venue for the 2008 Ryder Cup.
It was the first ever competition between The Society of One Armed Golfers and their rivals the NAOAGA (North American One Armed Golfers Association). The 12 man teams of highly competitive golfers squared off in a three day, Ryder Cup style format international competition.
The two organisations paved the way in 2008 for the Fightmaster Cup to be the flagship international Ryder Cup style match play tournament for the worlds very best one armed golfers. Like the Ryder Cup, the event is being alternated between North America and Europe every two years and is held close to that years Ryder Cup venue.
Named after Louisville's own Don Fightmaster, an internationally well known, one armed golfer who has inspired numerous young men and women with permanent disabilities to take up the game of golf. Don lost his left arm in an accident in 1954 and since has won numerous national and international championships for one armed golfers.
The Society of One Armed Golfers annually hold several tournaments for their members, including the World One Armed Golf Championship and season ending regional Championships. NAOGA also hold their own series of competitions.
