"We're talking golf with Willie Tony. He is the assistant golf pro and Olympic Club in San Francisco. He's also african-american shared with us how he got interested the passion he got for having the ability to be able to play golf, and I mentioned it before the break a little bit about three of the pioneers. What was it like for Charlie Sifford Lee elder and Pete Brown I know a little bit about the elder because I got to know him when I was back in Washington DC as a sports caster but tell me about those pioneers. So. Pete Brown actually might have been the first African American to win a PGA tour event but they're their path was difficult because there was an all white claws all the way up until nineteen, sixty, one, I think Charlie and a lawyer you're out of Contra Costa. County. filed that lawsuit about the Caucasian clause. So even when Pete Brown and and Charlie and evenly elder trying qualify into some of these events they changed the rules and say, well, they're now invitationals instead of open events you know so that they had they had to deal with that type of pressure and then the torment of you know guys putting feces and cups. They'd be playing and all of a sudden there. Be You know human feces and a cup or something like that and and you know you're going what the heck is going on so With those guys you know I. They they actually pave the way for the guys that we see. Now you know the Calvin Pizza and and that we saw in that era, the eighties, and now you know going forward and this new millennium they all have those types of of situations that they can look back on and and just kind of shake their head because that's all you can do because if you react negatively. It could determine your outcome of future. Events to be played or even being accepted out there. So it comes down to acceptance and it took them a long time to even open that door. Let me just share with people some information on the three men that I mentioned Charlie Sifford was the first African American to play on the PGA tour. He won the Greater Hartford Open and the Los Angeles Open also won the United Golf Association's National Negro Open six times and the Pva Seniors Championship in seventy, five, Lee elder one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, five became the first African American to play in the Masters Tournament and he was invited to that tournament after he won the nineteen seventy, four Monsanto open and he was forty years old when he did so and Pete Brown was the first African American to win a PGA tournament event with his win at the Waco Turner Open you know Lee said to me at one time because I, didn't get that opportunity to play in the masters till I was ninety years old and he did not make the cut. He said there was so much stress and so much pressure. I would have liked to have known how I could have done if I had been able to play that tournament a little bit earlier and I'm sure many of the pros African. American. Pros probably felt that way. As much. Would you agree with that? Willy Oh. Definitely agree I mean when Calvin qualify for it you know he was getting death threats they were talking about you know if you play well here, you know we'll be an trees and we'll snipe you I mean he's trying to play at one of the most historic venues and golf and you've earned a right to do it, and then you're getting death threats I don't know who of our Caucasian counterparts have had to play into that type of pressure. Yeah I. I understand what you're saying there. The other thing too about golf is that it's something that I've often said this before I'm not a golfer. Tennis player because if I make a mistake five seconds later, I can forget about it. If I make a mistake in golf, I've got all afternoon looking forward. And I'm not one that is happy about chasing a little white ball through the green grass and everything. How does one get their head around playing the golf? What is it about the the sport of off? That is so invigorating those plan. Okay. It's it's first office the feeling that you get when you hit a shot. Perfect and everybody gets one. He gets one good shot during one round even if the other ones were banned right and that brings you back. Back literally it's it's it's the feeling of the shot and then. The it's it's a great character bill sport because it's it's the sport is derived around thinking and planning and and staying in the moment. So for those of us that are like I said I'm one of the the two kids in the middle of four. You know the two of US kind of have always marched our own beat. We did things that were individuals far as you know, athletics are things that we we were interested in or hobbies but. When you're one of those children you have to be more independent because the book ends get the attention, the oldest and the youngest. So Golf was perfect sport for me. gave me opportunity to just rely on me and what I did to execute either hitting the shot or missing a shot and I didn't have to rely on anyone else. So Great Sport Great Sport. That way you know lay Trevino has been a longtime friend of mine and I've had so many wonderful conversations with him and as he said, he says, you know you talk about pressure for million dollar check that's not pressure and I think you know this line pressures putting for for twenty dollars when you only have five in your pocket? That's right. Absolutely. Days that way. Every Golfer wants to our has I think probably there perfect round of golf. What was it for you? Willy. Perfect around the Goff would have been. Say a just come back from the National Minority Collegiate Golf Championship. It was in Cleveland Ohio at, of course, called Highland Park I think finished fourth that year and then flew back to Texas my mom met me at in Houston. We drove up to where she's from Paris. Texas. So we went to go visit my grandmother. and. I played a local course there. And shot the course record and it was just one of those scenarios where everything I couldn't I couldn't do anything. Wrong. I mean I think I made nine birdies I think shot sixty, three and Making a single bogey and the kid that I played with was a kid from from Paris Texas. So those are like shining moments and then you know. There's I think the when I got elected to a full PJ member in two thousand and one. Those are moments that that stand out for me and we've got about three minutes left and I know the PJ's trying to do something about including minorities particularly African Americans more in the sport of golf with the PGA's i..
