  1. 2 BLACK MEN AND 1 WOMEN, OPEN UP YOUR MEMBERSHIP MASTERS ITS THE 21ST CENTURY,,,,, FINALLY MR. ELDER…….AT 86, CAN YOU IMAGINE HAVING TO WAIT FOR A GREAT MAN TO BE GIVEN THE HONOR HE DESERVES….

  2. Let that sink in. It wasn't until 11 years after the 1964 civil rights act that Augusta let a black person play there. Less than 50 years ago, black players weren't allowed to play this course.

  3. Super-duper congrats to Mr. Lee Elder!! This man had to endure a massive amount of racism at that extremely racist golf club. Sorry it took 45-years to get your roses, but nonetheless you certainly deserves them! 🌹🏌🏾‍♀️🌹

  4. Congratulations Lee, a real pioneer against racial inequality, one with character and strength. Compared to Tiger Woods' FILTHY LIE TO WORLD, "I became aware of my racial identity on my first day of school, on my first day of kindergarten. A group of sixth graders tied me to a tree, spray painted N_gg_r on me and threw rocks at me. That was my first day of school. And the teacher really didn't do much of anything."  
    What a champion.
