    There's an article in the July issue of Golf Magazine lamenting the fact that there are so few blacks on the PGA Tour and what should be done about.

    One answer they gave was affirmative action.

    They also mentioned that all the caddies are now white.

    Why don't they mention the fact that there are few blacks in Bel Air or New Canaan, Ct if they are so concerned about diversity?

    Some guy also wrote in with an ethical question. He was invited to a club that has discrimination policies and wondered if he should play there and "endorse" the policies, even though it was a club he really wanted to play

    Imagine writing a letter to Golf Magazine about this "issue". Maybe this letter was just made up by the editors to fit in with the other articles in this issue.
