Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``Bitter, ornery, angry'' Sifford, writing with freelancer Gallo, here provides an unrelievedly depressing autobiography that, one hopes, will cause shame in certain quarters and inspiration in others. While the man who has been called--inaccurately, he says--the Jackie Robinson of pro golf was the first African American to be accepted into the PGA (in 1960), Sifford encountered as much racism after joining the tour as he had before: not from fellow players, who simply treated him as a challenging opponent, but from organizers of the tour and especially from sponsors of various events. Sifford notes that playing on the Senior and Super Senior Tours he has made more money than before, but he is extremely pessimistic about the future of blacks in the game. Yet there's a lesson to be learned from this model of justified righteousness: ``anybody . . . who decided that I wasn't good enough or marketable enough to enter their golf tournament . . . I don't stay down. I fight back.'' Photos. (July)

    Just let me play is the uplifting and inspirational story of Charlie Sifford, the first black golfer on the PGA tour. This tell-all autobiography displays all the highs and lows of Sifford¿s career. Weather they are him winning the Hartford open, the biggest win ever for a black player, or being forced to eat in the locker-room because of his race. It also gives a sense of Sifford¿s life growing up, telling in detail about his parents who were both Charlotte natives that had stressed the importance of education and equality to their children. The novel also gives a look at those who paved the way for Sifford himself such as Teddy Rhodes. Legal issues between Sifford and the PGA are also located in the novel. I strongly recommend this book to all readers. Charlie Siffords long and strenuous to become the first black player on the PGA tour is one that should be witnessed by many. You will never come across another book like this in your lifetime. This provocative and straight forward novel is one for the ages. You don¿t want to miss out.
