I'm glad Tiger won the Masters, but he's no hero to the Black community

Tuesday 09:55 GMT

Couple that with the fact that it happened at the Masters on a course that was literally built on the grounds of a slave plantation, one that no Black golfer had ever even competed on until Lee Elder in 1975, at a club that didn’t even have a Black member until 1990.

You may not have a pulse if you didn’t feel at least a little warm inside as Tiger passionately embraced his son behind the 18th green, a scene reminiscent of the bear hug that he shared with his late father Earl Woods after winning the Masters for the first time back in 1997.
