Check out the video. Augusta National Golf Club Chairman Billy Payne dodged 10 questions from reporters over why the exclusive club — which hosts the Masters golf tournament this week — continues to exclude women. “Well, as has been the case … whenever that question is asked, all issues of membership are now and have been historically subject to the private deliberations of the members, and that statement remains accurate and remains my statement,” Payne said.

  • Fine Mr. Stick your head in your ass and keep it there. I think it's time we went after your sponsors. We are overdue in letting the world know the Masters is a mysoginist pig of an organization.
  • Why can't we have a club just for guys? You gals have the O network, the Girl Scouts, the Red Hat Society...
    And why would you want to belong to an organization that doesn't want you?
    Now get in the kitchen and make me a samich.

Tiger's first-round swing is a Big Miss

Really, Tiger? Win at Bay Hill like it was 2000, have the world thinking a fifth green jacket's yours for the taking, then show up at the Masters and hit it like it's the bad old days of 2010?
