Deaf Golfer Justin Tokioka Makes No Excuses as the Future of Warrior Golf

Justin “Pono” Tokioka is a deaf golfer who plays for the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. Born profoundly deaf, Tokioka has found a way to get an education with the help of a sign language interpreter. During his childhood, Tokioka competed in baseball, track, flag football and golf. This led head coach Ronn Miyashiro to offer him a scholarship to play for the Rainbow Warriors.

Prior to UH, the Līhu‘e, Kaua‘i native lettered for four years in golf, winning the title of Kaua‘i Interscholastic League individual champion for two years in a row. In addition, he took his talents to the United States and World Deaf Golf Championships, with a Top 10 finish in both.
