Memorial06122015 

A memorial monument honoring African American golf pioneer George “G. G.” Johnson now prominently stands at the Shawnee Golf Course in Louisville. The granite tribute serves as a lasting remembrance of the man who paved the way for modern African American golfers such as Tiger Woods.


 The memorial was unveiled on June 12, at the Urban League’s annual George “G. G.” Johnson Golf Scramble, named in the golfer’s honor. George’s wife of 42 years, LaJune, granddaughter Taiesha Perry, brother Charlie Johnson, other family members, and over 100 friends and supporters were in attendance for the unveiling.

 

George passed away in March 2014, leaving a long legacy that has impacted past and future generations of African American golfers. He started playing professional golf in 1964 and became the fourth African American to win a PGA tournament in 1971. He was inducted into the African American Golfers Hall of Fame in 2008.

 

Named a Lifetime Member of the PGA Tour, George also became the first African American to become a head golf pro in Kentucky when he took over the leadership of Louisville’s Bobby Nichols Golf Course.
