Charlie Sifford, the first Black member of the PGA Tour, has died; he was 92 years old. No cause of death was given, but he did suffer from a recent stroke. Despite all the racist threats against him at the time, Sifford went on to win twice in the PGA Tour. He was also the first Black World Golf Hall of Fame inductee in 2004, and even received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from US President Barack Obama last year. (Image source: The Score)
