LPGA’s Laura Diaz: 100 Influential Black Women in Sports


Sports Illustrated and Power Onyx are putting the spotlight on the diverse journeys of Black women across sports—from the veteran athletes, to up-and-coming stars, coaches, executives and more—in the series, Elle-evate: 100 Influential Black Women in Sports.


Laura Diaz took her first golf lesson on her 10th birthday and instantly fell in love with the game. ”I remember my brother and I used to tell my dad to take us to the place with the shoes that go click, click. We started going with him just having fun, driving the car, and then we started taking lessons,” she says. Now working as the LPGA’s senior director of foundation operations and diversity, equity and inclusion, Diaz dedicates herself to making the game she loves accessible to as many women and girls as possible.
