Orléans deafblind golfer wins Stableford overall title

Orléans deafblind golfer Kevin Frost is the newly crowned provincial Stableford champion for blind golfers.

Frost competed at the Blind Ontario and Canadian golfing championships in Simcoe, Ontario, where he took home first prize in the Stableford category which gives points to holes based on par. For instance, a birdie is awarded three points, a par two points and a bogie one point. Points are awarded based on the golfer’s handicap. Since Frost has a 24 handicap, he got an extra shot on every hole. So a par three was a par four and a par four a par five, etc.

He also placed second for the overall for the low gross score in the B2 category with an 87, which is the lowest round he’s ever played. The B2 category is for golfers with five degrees to eight degrees of tunnel vision.

Frost opened the 2022 golfing season by placing fourth at the USA Open Blind Championships competing against golfers who play year round. It was only his second round of the year.

After Florida, he traveled to Ohio where he competed in a team event pitting the best blind golfers in Canada against the best in the United States in match play. Frost won both of his matches, but the team unfortunately fell short of the title.

In July, Frost competed at the Western Canadian Blind Golf Championship in Calgary. It was a very unsummerlike 11 degrees Celcius. He was also very sick, but still managed to finish fourth.

Frost is now preparing for the World Blind Golf Championships which will take place in South Africa next March.

But before that, he has a book coming out in September about his journey as a deafblind international athlete. Besides golf, Frost has also competed on the international stage as a speed skater and cyclist.

The book will be available on Amazon and through Barnes & Noble. A total of 250 soft copies will be up for sale with the proceeds going to help produce an audiobook for other blind individuals.

“I’m pretty excited about it. It’s something I’ve been working on for awhile and I’m hoping it will inspire other deafblind individuals to get involved in a sport.”

Through his many accomplishments, Frost continues to be an inspiration to athletes both young and old alike, phys-ically challenged and not.
