The PGA Caucasian Only Clause
The Caucasian-Only clause was written into the organization's constitution in 1943. The amendment read: "Professional golfers of the Caucasian race, over the age of eighteen years, residing in North or South America, and who have served at least five years in the profession (either in the capacity of a professional or in the employ of a professional as his assistant) shall be eligible for membership.”
Before the Caucasian-only clause was rescinded, one black professional did become a member of the association. But his inclusion came by accident, and when the mistake was discovered he was summarily removed from the role.
