Tiffany Mack Fitzgerald’s resumee has a lot of, ah, holes in it.  But that’s a good thing! “When I worked in corporate America, I was getting assigned projects that kept me in my little cubicle, where I didn’t get to interact with many people. And I’d run into young Caucasian interns who were getting very difficult projects while hamming it up with the execuitves and I kept wondering, What’s the deal here?” the founder of Black Girls Golf tells Black Girl Nerds host Jamie Broadnax. “What I eventually found out was these interns would get asked to play a round of golf with the executives—and they went. But I didn’t know how to play and it didn’t seem like something that black people did. So I went to Kmart, bought some clubs for $100 and took five lessons.  Then the next time I heard one of the execs say, ‘Let’s go play,’ I went along. And it was like—bam!—I had instant credibility and respect.”
