Backstory and Context
Alexander, the owner of the golf club told Sifford that the best choice for him is to leave the club. At first Sifford was mad and discouraged because the same person who taught him the game was kicking him out. Then later in life he noticed Mt. Alexander was doing what was best for him so he didn't get hurt or targeted moved to Philadelphia when he was 17 years old, where he played against local black golfers.
Sifford began golfing professionally in 1948. He competed in the golf tournaments that black golfers organized for themselves as they were excluded from the Professional Golfers' Association of America.
