PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan and Harold Varner Discuss Social Injustice

After a 3-month shutdown resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, the PGA Tour returns to competition, set against a backdrop of social and racial unrest from the killing of George Floyd in police custody.

Ahead of the 2020 Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Golf Club, PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan sat down with pro golfer Harold Varner III, one of only a handful of African American players on the Tour, to discuss their views about social injustice. The discussion was sparked by Varner’s open letter, posted on his social media, which talked about his point of view. The video discussion was moderated by Sara Diaz, Manager, Multicultural Marketing Strategy at PGA Tour.
