Dive In

 

So I was denied access into the clubhouses. That’s fine. Put my shoes on here in the parking lot. I asked two questions only, that was it. Where was the first tee, and what was the course record? Not complicated.

That’s Tiger Woods making a rare comment about the racism he faced as a black kid playing in whites-only golf clubs. It was part of a longer, emotional speech at a ceremony to mark his entry into the World Golf Hall of fame. Interestingly, his 15-minute speech made no mention of his many victories—but focused on his childhood and years of struggle.

 

Stuff to check out: On the latest episode of the splainer podcast ‘Press Decode’, the splainer team discussed the politics of rescue—be it freeing students in Ukraine or the ocean of plastic waste. Be sure to head over to the IVM website, Spotify or Apple Podcasts to listen to it.

 

Missed talking to Konkona? You can now watch our AMA with the brilliant actor Konkona Sen—who offered lively, thoughtful and frank answers to our subscribers’ questions.
