Born without fingers on her left hand, Gianna Rojas, the One-Handed Lady Golfer, spent most of her life letting other people tell her what she was capable of doing.

But after seeing her husband and friends enjoying themselves out on the golf course, Gianna had had enough of sitting on the sidelines. Little did she know at the time, making the decision to take up the game would ultimately change not only her life but improve the lives of so many others.

Through Adaptive Golfers, Gianna uses golf as a platform to show people of all abilities—whether they be physical, cognitive, health, or age-related—that if there’s a will there’s a way.

Something Gianna likes to do at her Adaptive Golf clinics is to help people understand how challenging golf can be for those who are differently abled, insisting that everyone should try some of these techniques for themselves to truly understand how talented these Adaptive Golfers really are.

Gianna believes that nothing is impossible, no matter what challenge you face on or off the course. You just simply have to find what works for you.
