WASHINGTON – Golfer Charlie Sifford had the rare honor of being recognized this week on a national stage – and meeting a new generation preparing to follow the cart path he blazed more than a half century ago. 

The first African-American to play on the PGA tour after the PGA abolished its “Caucasian Only” clause in 1961, Sifford received the Presidential Medal of Freedom during a White House ceremony Monday. At the U.S. Capitol a few hours later, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore hosted a reception in his honor to express its appreciation to the civil rights pioneer.
