I just realized that as a fan of golf and a player who loves it I have been racially insensitive to the racial divide of golf. There is only one AfrAmerican player on the PGA tour today and his name is not Tiger.
Harold Varner III is the only 'active' AfrAmerican on the men's PGA tour today.
That is a crying shame. Because you know, all it amounts to is access. People of all races find golf expensive and exclusive, but folks of lower incomes can't touch it.
I believe that the PGA needs to do TEN TIMES MORE to make golf affordable for minority and low-income youth. And I will go so far to say that the US government should chip in too.
Because golf is a uniquely civilized sport. It is almost designed to make friends out of strangers. And that is something our nation and our world needs. The land taken up by golf courses is 'all green' good natural growth adding oxygen to our environment. Golf courses are 'parks' that should be expanded and enjoyed by all.
