deals with constant competition amongst individuals for acquisition of power. (In this case,PGA determined the outcome of sports; sports reveals the existing inequalities in society
is the functionalists' contention that sports contribute the maintaining balance in a society, and that sports provide catharsis. (Such a precedent seen as opening 'floodgates': PGA argued that changing its rules would alter the competition; demand for golf carts by every individual with a condition).

Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber (KTW) Syndrome?
CASEY MARTIN VS PGA T0UR 2001
Ever since he was a young boy, Casey Martin has played golf and won 17 junior golf titles in his home state of Oregon.
Casey's accomplishments were notable given that he had been diagnosed with KTW. Throughout his college years, Casey's condition steadily worsened as the circulatory disorder eroded the bones in his right leg. Eventually, he realized that he could not walk the entire 18 hole golf cours and so used a golf cart to take him from one shot to the next.
Casey Martin (born June 2, 1972) today is an American professional golfer and the current men's golf head coach at the University of Oregon.
Martin has numerous achievements to his name including a tie for the 23rd spot in the 1998 U.S open.
Martin suffers from a birth defect in his right leg known as Klippel Trenaunay Weber syndrome.
CASEY MARTIN/PGA/ KTW
Martin made a request, supported by detailed medical records, for permission to use a golf cart during the third stage. Petitioner refused, and Martin filed this action under Title III of the ADA, which, among other things, requires an entity operating "public accommodations" to make "reasonable modifications" in its policies "when ... necessary to afford such ... accommodations to individuals with disabilities, unless the entity can demonstrate that making such modifications would fundamentally alter the nature of such ... accommodations," §12182(b)(2)(A)(ii)
The American Disabilities Act
CULTURE AND VALUES
More attention given to the disabled
, for instance the term 'Public Accomodation' was widened, and the essentiality of walking between holes challenged.
Challenge to the mainstream culture
: PGA believed this decision only relevant to the case due to his unique golf skills and not all cases would be in favour of athletes unless proven. This became a major issue because norms of golf were being challenged.
