Advocates Professional Golf Association continues its mission with event at TPC Scottsdale

Kamaiu Johnson didn’t start playing golf until 15 years old, but that didn’t stop him from pursuing a future in the game.

His passion took him to New York, where he caddied to support his career, before returning to Florida. After moving from Tallahassee to Orlando, he met a group of golfers who told him about the Advocates Professional Golf Association Tour.

“When I first turned pro, it was the only tour that the guys looked like me,” Johnson said. “It felt like home.”

On Monday morning, Johnson – donning a light blue polo shirt, navy shorts and white golf shoes – was one of the first golfers to tee off Hole No. 1 at TPC Scottsdale’s Champions Course, the venue for the latest event of the APGA Tour held Monday and Tuesday.
