The phrase African Americans in sports conjures up many images http://www.cheapnbajerseysrockets.com/K … ls-Jersey/ , including soaring dunks in basketball, broken field runs in football, majestic homeruns in baseball and world records in track and field.

Thanks to Tiger Woods, one of those images is clutch play in the world?s most important golf tournaments featuring mental toughness and ruthless exploitation of the game and its best players. Yes, Tiger has brought golf into the forefront of African Americans in sports imagery http://www.cheapnbajerseysrockets.com/M … ey-Jersey/ , but so far that image has not translated into widespread participation.

Yes, the Journal of Black Studies tells us that African American participation in golf has doubled since roughly the time Tiger won his first Masters in 1997, but in reality that is more a reflection of how low the numbers were to begin with.

According to African American Golfers Digest, about 6.3 percent of those who play golf at least once per year are African American, which translates into about 2.2 million African American duffers. Of those teeing it up between the ages of five and 17 http://www.cheapnbajerseysrockets.com/C … er-Jersey/ , about seven percent are African American.

Tiger Woods has attempted to address the discrepancy with his First Tee program, which was founded after the 1997 Masters Tournament, and there has been some success. The most recent report says that 20 percent of First Tee participants are African American and 33 percent are female, two non traditional sources of amateur participation.

Still, the central problem remains?African Americans in sports tend to gravitate towards sports that are easily played in urban areas and where there are plentiful role models. Tiger Woods is the only African American on the PGA Tour. There are no African American women on the LPGA Tour. When Lee Elder participated in the 1975 Masters http://www.cheapnbajerseysrockets.com/D … as-Jersey/ , there were eight African Americans on the main men?s tour.

There are plenty of theories as to why this state of affairs exists. The old rout for minority success in golf used to be through caddy programs that allowed youngsters to play courses at the clubs for which they caddied. That is how Elder, Jim Dent, Lee Trevino and Chi Chi Rodriguez say they got their start. Today, the millions of dollars in revenue generated by carts have severely curtailed caddy programs at many country clubs and municipal courses.

Access also plays in a role for African Americans in sports. Regardless of race, getting to a golf course if you?re starting from the Bronx or the south side projects in Chicago is difficult http://www.cheapnbajerseysrockets.com/J … th-Jersey/ , or at least more difficult than finding a basketball hoop or a track. Access is a phenomenon that affects many sports. For what reasons other than climate and culture would Canadians and Northern Europeans dominate the NHL, or a disproportionate number of baseball players come from warm weather climates like California, Texas and Latin America that allow for year round play on the diamond?

The name golf began as an acronym for Gentlemen Only, Ladies Forbidden. While those times have certainly changed, the game?s tradition includes exclusionary practices from some of its most well known clubs http://www.cheapnbajerseysrockets.com/L … ms-Jersey/ , including Augusta National which still has not admitted a female member. Tiger Woods alone, in less than a generation?s time, cannot change an entire culture.
Across North America today, more and more women are becoming proactive about their personal fitness. This renewed focus on personal health has precipitated a marked increase in the number of available solutions from women’s fitness equipment suppliers, each offering new innovations designed to product fit http://www.cheapnbajerseysrockets.com/S … er-Jersey/ , trim and toned bodies. Within the fitness equipment supplier field in the United States, one company continues to lead the industry – Slender You

When a company purchases products through Slender You they make all the additional revenue that those products bring in, all the while simply leveraging the Slender You brand name to bring up more revenue for their company.
