Advocates Pro Tour

The mission of the Advocates Pro Tour is to bring greater diversity to the game of golf by developing African Americans and other minorities for careers in golf. This will be accomplished through professional tournaments, career fairs and mentoring sessions.

from Vincent Johnson

"Had an interview with Golf Channel after the 1st round of the Advocates Pro Tour Tampa event. I didn't have a particularly good day with a 74, but it's always great to help promote the Tour. The Advocates group has done an incredible job providing opportunity to black golfers, with the goal of getting more representation on the PGA Tour. "

Kevin Hall: Golf in the Public Eye

Kevin Hall is the 2017 recipient of the Genesis Open’s Charlie Sifford Memorial Exemption and will make his first PGA Tour start since 2006 next week at Riviera.

Named after Sifford last month, the tournament exemption has been awarded since 2009 and is focused on “representing the advancement of diversity in the game of golf.” Past recipients include Harold Varner III (2014), Carlos Sainz (2015) and J.J. Spaun (2016).

Hall, 34, lost his hearing at age 2 because of H-Flu meningitis. A top-ranked junior player, Hall was the first-ever African American to play on a golf scholarship at Ohio State and now plays professionally on the SwingThought Pro Golf Tour and Advocates Pro Golf Tour.
