    Maybe Damien Cox is looking to invent some controversy and interest in his column.
    I spend zero time reading him and Steve Simmons.

      The funny part is you’re always close behind with a snide remark. Get over yourself.
      You are so transparent..... Don't pretend you're not looking for a fight..... Oh yea, forgot your screenname......

        That said, Nicklaus lost any respect with his white privilege support of Trump, but my specific thoughts are there was a time and a place where some of the behaviours deemed as 'normal' in the south were accepted by many institutions, ANGC being just one...

        Like most, they have gone a long way to improve and align with the times, and with what is right - Certainly not perfect and not fast enough of course. The legacy of Clifford Roberts began to fade after his suicide in 1977, cemented on a wonderful spring day 20 years later.

        I agree w/another that Damien Cox is looking for relevancy and to stir it up.

        Thanks.
        We all love the Masters and tread lightly when asking them to make a stand. So they have 2 female members now (thankfully Condoleezza Rice checks off 2 boxes) and has the female amateur there too... whoopdedoo.....



        It would be nice if they did stand for something beyond white privilege....

          Yeah, I heard in a general survey of ANGC members the answer to the question, "What is BIPOC?" with the most responses was No. 3 "A character on Star Trek"...

            If you thread-crap, don't feign surprise when you get called out on it. Go cry about it to someone who takes you seriously.

              So Jack isn’t entitled to an opinion if it doesn’t line up with the left?

              clearly Biden has been great for the country.... what a joke

                  I asked a question regarding something another poster said, and you were right around the corner with your cape on looking to be a hero. Get a grip.

                    Quit feigning surprise. You know exactly why you posted. Must be still upset that the President Biden thread has not taken off.....

                        You say I am the one looking for a fight, and then you're right there holding PC's hand criticizing what you perceive to be my motivation for posting, instead of responding to the actual post... maybe you should ask yourself why you've replied, instead of casting aspersions onto others.

                            I don't think angc owes anyone anything. At the end of the day it's a business. And like alot of businesses they'll do or say just enough to not be a hate trend on twitter.

                              Maybe a better idea to start your own thread on Voting Laws and explain why it was so important to change.....

                              I'll be sure to ignore the thread.

                                https://www.augusta.com/masters/stor...s-born-nursery
                                It's built on a former indigo plantation, according to that article. What's the clarification that's needed?

                                Anyways, I think they now see the club as more than just a golf club, but also as an elite group of leaders. As such, they've been taking real efforts to grow the game with youth, and more recently with women. I don't think it's just tokenism either.

                                Most of their "racist" acts in the past were just normal behaviour for the times and the location. I suspect the membership and certainly the club leadership could easily be called "woke" now, by many.....
