Twice as Good, by Richard Michelson and Eric Velasquez, tells the story of William Powell.

Powell's Clearview Golf Club remains the only African-American designed, built and owned golf course in the United States and is also a National Historic Site.

Renee Powell, the daughter of William Powell, stopped by our studio to tell us more about the book about her father called Twice as Good.

Renee began competing as a golfer at age 12 and she is the only African-American woman to become a Progressional Class A member of both the LPGA and the PGA of America.

She is also one of three African-American women to play on the LPGA tour.

Twice as Good is now available for purchase. Visit for more information. Proceeds from the book help benefit the Clearview Legacy Foundation.

You can also learn more about the Clearview Legacy Foundation on facebook.
