joe.hooks Part 1 of a little black history segment on the general History of Black Golfers in America.

John Shippen- (Early 1900s) x first to play in the US Open (5 times)

Ted Rhodes- (1940s & 1950s) second to play in the US Open in 1948 x Key in advancing the game for blacks with the ability to qualify for the PGA Tour during the height of its Whites-Only Clause, alongside his on-course pupil, then Heavy Weight Champion Joe Louis

Bill Spiller- (Late 1940s & 1950s) Most outspoken x The loudest & crudest voice of early on-course struggles for professional black golfers

Joe Louis- (Late 1940s-1950s) Due to his National Prevalence (& alongside Rhodes and Spiller) this heavyweight champ used his voice, finances, and love for the game to spread word of the PGA of America's White-Only clause, which was then frowned upon by many of the country's top news outlets #WBG #WBGgolf #BlackGolf #BlackHistory #BlackHistoryMonth #Golf #PGATour

jayystones Can't go today without mentioning a great man, whom endured some of the toughest times and things I can only imagine. #MrCharlieSiffford was blessed to live a long life and that along with his ability to open doors for others should be what we celebrate. I appreciate his sacrifice and don't take it for granted. #RIP 3w

  •   kwame___ What if I told you tiger loses on purpose. 4w
  •   e4ourhire @_prince_k of course I would ask why? 4w
  •   kwame___ Cuz he has to. That's the deal he made with his superiors 4w
  •   e4ourhire @_prince_k I mean I'm down for conspiracy theories but I think that's a bit far fetched. Its not like he got all his endorsements back. 4w
  •   kwame___ You gotta let what I told you marinate first before you reply. How all of a sudden tiger is garbage? He's the only one with multiple sports related surgeries. 4w
