Sadena Parks and Cheyenne Woods have known each other since they were 14 years old. Growing up together in the competitive world of tournament golf cemented their relationship, so it is only befitting that they become members of the LPGA Tour together - the first time two African American women have been on the tour at the same time.
Both women have earned playing status to compete in 2015 on the LPGA Tour. They are just the fifth and sixth African-American women to be members of the tour, which was founded in 1950.
"I think it's special that both Sadena and I were able to do it the same year," Woods said. "We've known each other since we were 14 or 15 years old. We grew up playing in the same golf organizations. It's kind of a long time coming.
"And I do think it's significant because of the lack of African-American women in the LPGA. You can name all of them easily because there have been so few." To read the full article, go to ESPNW.
