Zohar Sharon won his fourth world title in the B1 division of the World Blind Golf Championships on July 17th.
The 59-year-old fired a 45 on the front nine and finished with a 98 for a two-round total of 216. According to Zohar, “It’s still hard to understand that I have won again. This course [Truro Golf Club] is an extremely hard one. In Israel, we don’t have any water on the courses so it’s much harder.”
In the early 1970s Sharon was an IDF member serving as a security guard protecting Israel’s nuclear reactor in the southern Negev desert, and that is when he was accidentally exposed to a poisonous chemical, which ultimately left him blind. It is this condition that led him to Beit Halochem and the sports activities it offers.
We are proud of Zohar’s commitment to this wonderful sport.
