Alex Fourie is an inspiration to all. Alex was in Ukraine with a cleft lip, cleft palate, and one arm which were a direct result of the world’s worst nuclear disaster at Chernobyl. Alex spent the first seven years of his life bouncing from orphanage to orphanage until he was adopted by a South African couple who were studying in Montgomery, AL. Alex’s organization “Single Hand Golf” has created a t-shirt that will be sold online and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the charitable foundation, Hope Now, the organization responsible for his adoption. To date, Alex has donated over $10,000 to Hope Now. But that is only half of Alex’s story……

Alex is a level 1 PGA Golf Instructor and the # 1 one-arm golfer in the United States. He lives outside Knoxville, TN with his wife and daughter. Later this summer, Alex will be playing in the inaugural USGA U.S. Adaptive Open in the Village of Pinehurst, NC. This is his story. Enjoy!
