As the protests over the death of George Floyd continue to escalate, the LPGA has released a statement declaring that it is against 'racism, sexism, violence and injustice'. 

The simple but affective image posted on the Twitter and Instagram pages for the golf organisation on June 1 read:

"Outrage. Anger. Frustration. Fear. 

What's left after it's all been said?

Action. Commitment. Leadership. Accountability. Love"

The post to continue to explain that although the Tour has always stood for equality, they accept that they still have work to do.

"For 70 years, the LPGA has stood firmly for equality, opportunity, fairness and unity. 

We have more work to do and the resolve to do it.

Change starts with people and there is power in each voice that stands up against racism, sexism, violence and injustice."

The post has generated multiple likes and messages of support.

We're proud to be part of an industry that's sending out such a strong and positive message. 

Golf is for everyone, and that's exactly why we love it.
