Golf Australia Express : Issue 49
CHARLIE SIFFORD A PIONEER PEEK THE I T WASN'T UNTIL 1961 that the PGA Tour allowed black players to compete on its tour. The organisation's 'Caucasians Only' clause was finally broken at that year's Wyndham Championship, in large part due to the efforts of this man—Charlie Sifford. After years of fighting to play on the tour and facing numerous threats to his safety, Sifford finally won his battle and opened the door for other blacks to play on the tour. The now 90-year- old made history as the first African- American to earn a PGA Tour card. The rest, as they say, is history. We salute a courageous man and golf pioneer for making this great game open to all. A true legend of golf. OTG SIFFORD: Barrier Breaker
