Words From The Wise

In this, Golf World's fourth installment of Words From The Wise, we give two foursomes of special golf folks the tee to talk -- to tell stories, celebrate triumphs, rue a loss or two and share the wisdom of their years.

"Golf's leadership needs to be more diverse. There are not enough blacks at the PGA Tour. There are not enough blacks at the USGA. There are not enough blacks, period. The First Tee probably has the most diverse population anywhere in the golf industry. Unless the current leaders make a commitment, it won't happen. Diversity means women and men of diverse backgrounds playing important roles: chief operating officers and chief marketing officers. They have to be given the chance to come up through the ranks."
