    It's a good one this year. Augusta National always invites the CEOs of the Masters major sponsors, currently Exxon, AT&T, and IBM, to join the club.

    What to do about new IBM CEO Ginny Rometty?

    Can't wait.

    This would be a perfect way for the club to end this silly self-created dilemma. So it won't happen. And then the other two CEOs are going to be on a spot they really won't like and will blame the club for.

    They'll let her play, but only if she pees standing up.

    My one "insider" who has covered that "tuneamint" a few times has told me that if anyone is gonna' break the gender barrier there it's going to be Billy Payne.

    They'll do the same thing they've done for the last 80 years; ignore her. It also was a tradition to invite presidents of the USGA to become members; someone go ask Judy Bell if perhaps she thinks her invitation got lost in the mail.

    I think you're 100% correct. I just like hearing those constipated flaccid musty crypt-keepers explain their decrepit grip on the sanctity of testicles.

    Yeah, but it's their crypt and they take no public dollars (and before you jump on "well, the public is admitted the week of the tournament") women have always been allowed to purchase tickets. Also, the wives and other female relatives of club members can play. Also, they invite the women's teams of Augusta State and South Carolina to play there once a year.
    They're not as much in the stone age as you think.

    I don't know why, but of all the great things in that sentence, "musty" might be my favorite. Well, that and sanctity of testicles.

    Wetzel wrote about it too.

    I know Augusta's a nice horse to shoot, but I find this one considerably more offensive considering the amount of political clout the place has roaming the halls.

    You're really going to resort to this as an example of non-discriminatory conduct? That's about as good as letting the caddies play the course.
