"My earliest trick shot routines were with one arm, on one leg, seated and blindfolded. I soon realized I had learned a great deal about the challenges facing disabled people. I began teaching and writing on golf with all types of disabilities and it's been going great guns ever since then." After more than two decades of working with disabled people, Peter Longo is recognized as one of the world's leading authorities on the subject. He has written dozens of articles for individual publications, along with teaching manuals on disabled golf for the USPGA, The Spanish Golf Federation, and the National Golf Foundation.
Peter Longo produced the first video ever done on handicapped golf, Challenge Golf, which has become an industry standard the world over. In 1989, Peter authored a treatise on golf and challenges for the U.S. Government that earned him a trip to the White House to meet sponsors First Lady Barbara Bush and Queen Sylvia of Sweden.
