    Tara Sullivan of the Bergen Record was barred from the locker room after the Masters.

    With a name like Tara??
  4. Never having covered a Masters, has this been a policy in place in previous years?

    (It's ridiculous. I'm just wondering why this hasn't come up before 2011).

    Shouldn't the thread title be women and their masters?

    I posted in the Masters running thread before seeing this one. In my day, no one went past a particular point in the locker room ... there was a guard standing between that anteroom and the locker room proper. At no point in the week did you get into the locker room proper. Further, after the actual competitive rounds you either got the players in the interview room or you caught them outside the scorer's tent. Would assume that's the same way today.

    Following up ... read her tweets, apparently I am/was in the wrong. Others were allowed into the locker room but not her. Definitely at minimum a dropped ball on ANGC's part.

    The Masters media guy told her it was a misunderstanding by the security folks and that she should have been given full access. Overzealous weekend security guards strike again.

    She sure did a lot of writing, tweeting and interview giving on deadline. Impressive.

    One of the reasons why media organizations need to stop covering the event. It's just a tournament in the end. Why are media organizations so afraid of ANGC? I know TV is because CBS and ESPN operate on one-year contracts.
