P4M GOLF MANAGEMENT
SIGNS FORMER WORLD #1 JOHAN KAMMERSTAD
Former world number 1 golfer with a disability, Johan Kammerstad has joined P4M GOLF ahead of the inaugural G4D Open to be held at Woburn Golf Club next month. The G4D Open becomes the second major event for golfers with a disability following last year’s inaugural US Adaptive Open.
Kammerstad is a 5-time individual European Champion who thrives in big events. He has proudly represented Sweden in two World Championship titles (2011, 2014), a European Team Championship victory in 2019 and can claim two Swedish Opens.
Johan was born without some bones and muscles in his right leg that over the course of 18 years required multiple operations to extend the length by some 20cm. Despite the ongoing surgeries and challenge in full movement Johan competed at an elite level, turning professional and playing on the Swedish Golf Tour.
At 25, Johan became involved in Sweden’s Paragolf and has since emerged as one of the world’s most successful golfers with a disability. In addition to his European and world titles, Johan won his first Australian All-Abilities Championship in 2018 in stunning fashion by a record 10 shots, simultaneously beating more than a third of the concurrent field in the final round of The Australian Open.
A main stay among the world’s top 10 WR4GD, Johan reached the pinnacle of the rankings following the successful defense of his Australian All-Abilities title in 2019. In doing so, he became the first Swede to reach the coveted number 1 spot.
“Playing opportunities for golfers with a disability have continued to grow in recent years giving the many incredible athletes an enhanced opportunity to play on a world stage” commented Marc Potter, CEO, P4M GOLF. “I look forward to assisting Johan with his ambitions and further establishing disability golf at the elite level”. Kammerstad adding “I’m delighted to have professional representation as the opportunities with disability golf and its exposure continue to grow. P4M Golf have proved themselves in this category and I'm excited for the future".
