PGA Honors Black History

 PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – As part of the month-long celebration of Black History Month, The PGA of America was joined by Bill Spiller Jr., the son of the late PGA Professional Bill Spiller, for their latest podcast. The podcast was also joined by Earnie Ellison, Director of Business and Community Relations for The PGA of America.

Spiller and Ellison touched on a wide variety of subjects, including the many African-American golf pioneers who paved the way for other African-Americans to enjoy and participate in golf today, Bill Spiller’s great success on the golf course, and the PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship.

Spiller also reminisced about his father being honored with posthumous membership in The PGA of America at the 93rd PGA Annual Meeting (Nov. 2009) in New Orleans.
