On Wednesday, October 3, Elder will address his efforts to fight discrimination and make the game more inclusive both during and after his playing career with a presentation to metropolitan-area youth groups. Local high school golf teams have been invited to attend, as well as members of the local chapters of the First Tee and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
