WALLINGFORD, Conn. — The game is the same, but those swinging the clubs have more power behind their shots. The power doesn’t come from a new club, it comes from their comeback stories. 

Each year at the Farms Country Club in Wallingford, Gaylord Hospital’s Sports Association holds The Ken Murphy Memorial Open – it’s a golf tournament for adaptive players. 

Katie Jolie, the program manager for the Sports Association said, “We have 24 adaptive golfers ready to go and we have people, some who have some type of physical disability or visual impairment playing against each other.”

The Murphy Open has become a tradition that brings adaptive golfers together from all over the state – many of them have done rehab with Gaylord Hospital.
