A year after International Junior Masters champion, Australian Jason Campbell, launched International Golfers magazine to the world, the publication has announced its first edition.
Black is the second of five international professional golf magazines to be launched in the past year, following the launch of Sports Impact by New Zealand’ One World Sports.
Organiser Bruce Brundage has said he is “thrilled” to launch the magazine and “that it has taken the steps it has to become the next International Golfers”.
The inclusion of another Black professional “seemed inevitable”, Brundage said.
“It feels like we’re at the start of a cycle which seems to be centred on strong indigenous Black coaches and administrators in all aspects of golf,” said Brundage.
“We’re really, really pleased to partner with One World Sports and Bruce Brundage to put the international golf marketplace under the umbrella of International Golfers magazine.
“Our objective with International Golfers is to help establish the next generation of incredible Black professionals, introduce golf to new markets and set up a loyal readership that is devoted to top-level Black golf talent.
“Our objectives with International Golfers will be the same as we had with Internationalsports, Bevel, Pro Apprentice and Scratch Boards – to help shine a light on the success of Black golfers.”
And for International Golfers magazine, creating a platform to highlight Black talent and showcasing their achievements to a global audience comes naturally.
“Golf is a game that should be treasured by our children,” Brundage said.
“We want to inspire our young people to choose a lifetime of golf and explore the possibilities that golf offers them. We want to show how golf can provide them with life-long challenges, obstacles and choices that they never before dreamt possible.”
He added: “There are many achievers from our culture, races and countries who deserve the opportunity to be recognised and we are looking forward to working with our new partners to help advance their sports and places of employment.”
