The Genesis Invitational names Aaron Beverly as Sifford Exemption ambassador

During the 2022 Genesis Invitational at Riviera, Aaron Beverly confidently told the world that playing in his first PGA TOUR event wouldn’t be the only life-changing opportunity, but rather the first of many opportunities on the horizon. As the recipient of the 2022 Charlie Sifford Memorial Exemption, Beverly competed alongside a field of the world’s best golfers when the tournament celebrated the centennial birthday of its 1969 champion, Charlie Sifford.

Tournament host Tiger Woods watches Aaron Beverly make his PGA TOUR debut in the 2022 Genesis Invitational. As part of the celebration of Charlie Sifford’s 100th birthday, Beverly as the Sifford Exemption recipient, hit the tournament’s first shot of 2022.

In a commitment to recognizing, supporting and celebrating diversity in the game of golf, The Genesis Invitational is proud to support Aaron Beverly and name him as an ambassador of the Sifford Exemption. Beverly will carry the tournament logo on his golf bag as he competes worldwide over the next year.

Following his start at Riviera in The Genesis Invitational, Beverly has competed on the APGA Tour and, in April, earned his PGA TOUR Canada card taking the next step forward on a path to the PGA TOUR. Follow Aaron’s journey @aaronbeverly_golf.
