Double Amputee Says Golf is a Great Sport ‘For Me, Someone With A Disability’

Tazmerria Wilson is a VIP Guest at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda.

According to PGA of America, Wilson, from Georgia, had both legs amputated before she turned three years old. She told MyMCM golf is a sport someone can play their entire life. 

“Other sports, your body wears and tears. But especially for me, someone with a disability, it’s a great sport,” said Wilson, who is going on her fifth year playing golf. She just graduated high school and is going to college to major in criminal justice and be a forensic analyst. Wilson also hopes to one day be a motivational speaker. 

The championship is the first women’s professional golf tournament held at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda.

“I’ve always had a male golf coach, so seeing it from a different perspective and also getting techniques from women is a good impact on me,” Wilson said. 

The championship will be played Thursday through Sunday.
