Malcolm Kirven – AA Golfers HoF Induction
In March of this year, we brought to your attention to a fundraiser for local Amateur golf legend, Malcolm Kirven (See original story here). Some of Malcolm's accomplishments include winning the 1959 and 1960 San Antonio City Junior Amateur Championships and the 1962 San Antonio City Men's Amateur Championship.
Malcolm and his family needed the help of the golf community to fund his trip to accept his induction into the African American Golfers Hall of Fame. Well, the local golfing community really came through, and over $4,000 was raised to get Malcolm out to Florida! His daughter Tashi, shared some pictures of the event on social media that you can see below.
From her post on Facebook:
"This past weekend my Dad…Malcolm was inducted into the Black Golfers Hall of Fame in West Palm Beach, FL. He also received the Trailblazer Award for his many golfing achievements.
Big Thanks to everyone that donated to the Go Fund Me, we couldn’t have done it without you."
