Disabled golfer sues USGA for right to use cart

AUSTIN, Texas -- A former teaching pro who conducts golf clinics for the disabled filed a federal lawsuit Monday against the United States Golf Association for the right to use a cart during U.S. Senior Open qualifying. JaRo Jones, 53, of Baytown, who has a disease that causes his leg and shoulder muscles to atrophy, says the USGA has denied his request for a cart during Senior Open qualifying for the past three years. Jones, who filed his lawsuit in Austin, says denying him use of a cart violates the Americans with Disabilities Act.
