The first Black golfer on the PGA tells of the consistent battles he has waged against bigotry in the exclusive world of golf, and tells how his courage has opened the sport to a new generation of Blacks
At age 69, Charlie Sifford still blasts his way through the PGA racial barriers and has opened up the world of golf to a new generation of blacks, such as Pete Brown and Lee Elder. This quiet man finally speaks out about the game and about the bigotry that lurks in the shadows of every tournament.
