    I do not understand why you think one excludes the other.
    i don't understand your assumptions---where did I ever say one excludes the other? You seem to like using my comments as your own personal Rohrshact test.
    I think the reason you don't see so many black cadddies is that black people are no longer restricted where they can play and therefore theyre out playing. You used to see more black caddies because that was the only  way they could get onto the course. Now the people who used to be caddies are out there playing.
    Ive seen black and white caddies being used by pro's.
    If you want to find racial segregatiion in golfing you don't have far to look.

      I think you are missing the point - the post is about caddies on the professional tours.

      For what you are talking about, the best explanation is the golf cart.

      You seem to be having a different conversation than the rest of us.

      And not for nothing, I would not use the "some of my best golfer friends are black" defense in the future.

      •  I didn't say THAT either!!! (0+ / 0-)

        i don't need to converse with you if this is how youre going to distort my remarks. I play with black and white and Hispanic and Asian golfers. Live with it!

          It read to me as I reacted to it. I was taken aback frankly.

          I'm sorry if I offended you, but it seemed a complete nonsequitor. I still don;t understand what the point of saying it was.

          As I noted, you seem to be having a completely different conversation than the rest of us. Do you wonder why?
