The Legend

July 18, 1943 – April 29, 2015

Professional Golfer Calvin Peete was born in Detroit, Michigan on July 18, 1943. Toward the end of the 20th Century Peete had become the most successful African American golfer on the PGA Tour, with 12 wins and a record that would be surpassed only by Tiger Woods who turned professional in 1996 at age 20. In 1983, dubbed “Mr. Accuracy” by fellow golfers for his ability to hit the ball consistently onto the fairway, Peete hit a staggering 84.55 percent of fairways in 87 PGA Tour rounds.

In 1984, he won the Professional Golf Association’s (PGA) “Vardon Trophy,” for PGA Tour leaders with the lowest scoring average. He was a member of the U.S. Ryder Cup teams in 1983 and 1985 and among the “top 10” in the “Official World Golf Ranking” for several weeks, during the rankings’ 39-week inaugural year, 1986.

After earning his PGA Tour card in 1975, he went on to win his first tournament, the Milwaukee Open, in 1979. The following year he qualified for the Masters in Augusta, Georgia and became the first African American to win The Players Championship in Vedra Beach, Florida, five years later.

During his 20-year career on the PGA Tour, Peete finished fourth on the money list in 1982 and had two-win seasons in 1983, ’85 and ’86. His success waned in the 1990s. Between 1991 and 1995 he appeared in 21 events. His last PGA Tour start came at the 1995 Player’s Championship,

Ironically the same year that 20 year old Tiger Woods joined the professional ranks. After retiring from competition in 1995, he continued to play in the Legends of Golf Tournaments until 2009.

The Letter

Dear Friends, Partners and Family,

We would like to invite you to the 7th Annual Calvin Peete Awards and Golf Tournament held in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday October 6thand Sunday October 7th, 2018.  We started The Calvin Peete Foundation to uphold the legacy of my dear friend, an extraordinary man who loved the game of golf.  

You may recall Calvin Peete’s success as a winner of 12 PGA Tour events in the 1980s.  This event is held to honor and support the next generation of golfers who are not provided the opportunities and resources to learn and develop within this game.

The Red Carpet & Awards Gala will begin Saturday night with celebration and entertainment as we recognize the Calvin Peete Awards recipients at The Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel and Conference Center.  Sunday afternoon, we will meet at the prestigious Golf Club of Georgia to play golf with our donors, sponsors and supporters.

Proceeds of this year’s event will be awarded to the Bill Dickey Junior Golf Foundation, Morehouse Men’s Golf Team and The First Tee of Atlanta Golf Program.  Our goal is to expand our impact on the minority golf community and increase their growth, exposure and experience.  We certainly hope that you will join us for this incredible journey, through your participation and generosity.

Mr. Warren E Barge
Chairman of the Calvin Peete Foundation
