In a multicultural world, golf will only be as strong as its ability to attract players of both sexes, all ethnicities and with various disabilities.
Founded by an African American woman, Debert Cook, The African American Golfers Digest has at least two of those bases covered.
Or maybe all three. On their winter issue is a photo of Kevin Hall, the deaf, African American golfer.
Now that really speaks to me. I’m a “profoundly deaf” (the technical term) Native American. But I’m here to tell you that being deaf is not a handicap in golf. Cell phones ringing? Camera clicks? Crickets? Birds? I have no idea what those things sound like, although I’ve played with golfers who have complained about all of those, and more.
