I say that they can keep their club men only and just stuff the revenue of the national golf circuit....

I want them to stand by their principles and not let a woman become a member.....

and then also accept the inevitable ....that Augusta National will lose sponsership and heavy pressure will be put upon any golfer of note that goes there.....

this could have been done gracefully but no....

I can readily see Woods being pressured to not play .....his fortune is his marketability.....he won't give that up....and the rest of the crowd will follow him....

Woods will never decline Augusta, no matter how bad the press gets.

The Masters is a whale of a lot bigger than Tiger Woods. I don't see how the feminists can work their will on the Masters except through sheer intimidation, and that isn't working.

The Masters is a major. It is also a private invitational tournament. Tiger wants to win majors. Therefore, Tiger will play The Masters. You might get him to boycott the Quad Cities Open or even the Volvo Masters but not Augusta.

There may be those who fall prey to the pressures of the women's movement and boycott The Masters. They will only do it once because they will never again receive an invitation.

His marketability? To who? The avid female golfers? His market is made up of men.
