The tour, called Underrated, announced the launch citing its commitment to balancing participation in the sport “to truly reflect our society.”

“Our passion is rooted in statistics. Today there are only two Black men in the top 100 worldwide rankings and only one Black woman in the top 300,” Underrated Golf wrote on its website, adding, “Meanwhile, Tiger Woods, who is recognized as the most important golfer of all time, is of Thai, White, Black and Native American descent. Although his reign on the sport is celebrated, the number of professional golfers coming up in his shoes continues to be less and less.”

The Underrated golf tour is scheduled to kick off in June in Chicago and finish in late August in San Francisco.

“Steph Curry is launching his own golf tour, aimed at increasing opportunities for underrepresented golfers: The UNDERRATED Golf,” Front Office Sports wrote on social media. “The top 24 boys and girls will compete for the Curry Cup on the all-expense-paid tour, promoting their talents on a national stage.”
