USGA Issues Statement on Death of George Floyd
The United States Golf Association issued a statement on the death of George Floyd on Thursday.
The statement is as follows:
The USGA is deeply saddened and disturbed by the tragic killing of George Floyd, and the racial and social injustice that continue to exist in our country. We will use our voice, our position and our actions to inspire change within our society.
While the game of golf is built on the values of fairness, integrity and respect toward all individuals, we recognize that our game’s history has not always represented the best of these ideals, and at times our own organization has fallen short. The USGA joins the call for open dialogue, understanding, unity, and the courage to envision and build a better world. We commit to being part of the solution moving forward.
