I’ve let my membership in the USGA lapse over the last few years, but I’m now motivated to renew. Why? This almost 130-year golf organization has just elected Fred Perpall as its president, the first African American to hold this post ever. I think that’s really great and want to wholeheartedly support the USGA for its efforts to expand and diversify the game. Golf brings people of all races, genders, politics, and persuasions together, and heavens knows America needs that during these polarized times. I’ll be getting a handicap rating at the same time, something I’ve also let lapse. It’s part of my resolution to improve my game in ’23, hit the ball a ton, and break 80 as I used to. Joining the USGA is part of committing to this great game of ours. I’d urge you to do the same. Just go to usga.org.
