The annual NAOAGA championship is held in different regions of the North American Continent and is structured in the traditional manner in which golf was founded.
The match play format was selected to determine the annual champion in two divisions: assisted, where golfers are allowed to utilize prosthetic devices and/or touch the club with two limbs; unassisted, where golfers touch the club with only one arm.
Beginning in 2013, the first two days of play are stroke play competition to determine the low eight qualifiers in each division. The qualifiers then proceed to the match play competition. Non-qualifiers participate in a series of alternate shot and best ball events throughout the tournament, playing for prizes.
The 2014 NAOAGA Annual Meeting and Championship was held June 9 - 12 in Mesquite, Nevada. The host hotel for the event was the Eureka Hotel and Casino. We conducted the tournament over three courses: Oasis Golf Club, Palmer Course; Oasis Golf Club, Canyons Course; and Falcon Ridge Golf Club.
In the assisted division, Klaus Schaloske defeated John Rogers 1 Up After 19 Holes. In the unassisted division, Jesse Florkowski defeated Xander Dobreff 7 and 6.
