AFRICAN AMERICAN GOLF CHAMPION, AVIS BROWN-RILEY, TELLS HER INSPIRATIONAL AND TRIUMPHANT STORY IN NEW BOOK
Avis Brown-Riley, a loving wife, and mother of two children, and a renowned golf champion who was inducted into the San Diego Hall of Champions and the African American Golfers Hall of Fame, has completed her new book Building of a Champion: an evoking and provocative true-to-life account about the author’s perseverance as a golfer and woman of character.
Brown-Riley conveys through her words a message of hope, optimism, and faith: “When my doctor first told me that I had breast cancer, I knew then that God had chosen me as the miracle of life, and I would be reborn again. Today, my body is pure, and my skin is as soft as a baby, and it is very hard to see my true age.”
She continues, “God spared my life for a purpose, and this is my story, and my purpose is to share with the world that you must never give up even when someone discourages you, and prepare for roadblocks in your path. God will navigate you through your journey called life. Whatever path you choose, remember to ask God to take your hand and allow him to walk that journey with you. He will never steer you wrong.”
Here are just a few of Avis’ accomplishments as a golfer:
* First and only African American woman to ever win the prestigious Junior Wold Golf Championship.
* First and only African American to ever win the San Diego Women’s City Amateur Championship
* First African American to win the National Minority Collegiate Golf Championship
* First ever African American golfer to participate in the Wickes Andy Williams San Diego Open (and played with Jerry Pate).
* One of few women to ever be inducted into the African American Golfer’s Hall of Fame
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Brown-Riley’s uplifting story looks back to the time of her profound experiences as an amazing golfer – from her early playing experiences to eventually becoming a champion – as well as her life-changing battle and victory against illness and adversity.
