Tim Finchem: The Masters is too important to drop
By mustang6560 on 5/10/12
In his annual "State of the PGA Tour" address, PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem was asked about the membership policy at Augusta National, which is the home of the Masters.
Q. With Augusta National's all‑male membership again an issue at this year's Masters, how does the PGA TOUR view its discriminatory policy?The commish did receive some flack for his comments during the press conference, however, it was a loaded question. The only "acceptable" answer Tim could have provided - at least in the eyes of the reporter who asked the question - was to say the PGA Tour is strongly opposed to the policy and can no longer co-sanction the event on its annual schedule, which isn't going to happen in the near future.
