      Interesting
      As most of you know, this tournament was attacked by Feminists a few years back.
      The club, private club, didn’t have female members and only two black members.

      The club, never blinked and eye.

      They dropped All sponsors and the tournament was shown on CBS as it happened.

      I can almost guarantee you , The Masters tournament will remain the Masters tournament.

        There has to be a line in the sand, Augusta is a good place to start.

              Augusta National is.

              The pea brains who even dare to think they can get The Masters to change for them....will not have seen the scorn they'll face from a bunch of those boys. The name Masters ain't going nowhere.

              Any attempt by BLM/etc to change that will be nothing more than a call to arms for the right side of that battle.

              If they scream loud enough, the networks may be pressured to drop coverage of the event, and pressure players to boycott the tourney.

              I hope Tiger has enough sense not to fall into this trap. They have tried to bait him to go against Trump a few times but he has ignored their BS so far.

                They will also threaten all network sponsors and bring the mob to incite violence. Augusta has a large black population, North Augusta is right across the Savannah River.

                lol I know two black master plumbers and a black master electrician. Not sure about the electrician but for the plumbers, you need to get licensed as a plumber and a contractor, have at least seven years of documented experience and then pass an exam to earn that designation. Guess they'll be disappointed to learn they did all that for a racist title.

                  Psssshhhh, nobody who has a public profile and anything to lose is going to draw any lines in any sand. This isn't about facts or common sense, it's only about feelings. If someone feels like something is racially offensive, then that's the end of the discussion. It is racially offensive, and it has to go. Any contrary point of view is racist or racially insensitive by definition.

                      UGA is less than 70 miles away and they have a rather large standing army of socialists. Then theres the Confederate Monument downtown and don't forget the cotton exchange.

                      Exactly. There's a flood of irrational feelings that are sweeping the country. The Master's isn't impenetrable to that advance.

                      The woke crowd is feeling very empowered.

                          This was already tried by the Feminazi’s.
                          The tournament could have cared less.
                          They just dropped all their sponsors.

                          CBS decided to show the tournament with no commercial interruptions and no sponsors.

                          The club could care less about TV or sponsors.
                          There will be plenty of money for the tournament for years to come just from members and revenues from the “Masters”.

                          Also, I’m pretty certain there isn’t a golfer on the tour that would purposely skip a “Major” tournament.
