    Our forefathers would be spining in their graves knowing that a nig nog affirmative action war criminal gets to play Augusta National on a daiy bases while the average white man will never get a chance to play it once. Sad. No wonder our society is falling apart.

    I turned it off around the 50-52 minute mark. First off, I had to search for the beginning and finally found the start around 41-42 minute mark. Then, once found, I listened for a good 10 minutes until I still hadn’t heard any answer as to “What it’s like to play Augusta National?” Only heard some celeb gushing between Williams and some guy named Steve Troutwine (spelling?). So why the click-bait headline? Maybe to force me to wade through all the promo talk for first 40 minutes? Then, it’s actually a discussion that’s somewhat interesting, maybe, but I don’t understand the headline/topic deception. I was half expecting an expansion upon the fact all visitors (and members I believe) all play the same member tees, which are only about 6200-6300 yards and nobody is expected, or even allowed, to play the tournament tees. Is it still a challenge off the tees? Are the greens still running 13-14 or more? (I doubt it). Oh well. Good to know some guy named Michael Williams has finally hit “the bigtime” and that Steve Troutwine can comfortably say “Is it I?”

    Not sure you can call him the “average golfer” if he’s played Augusta 25x’s…

        She served under Bush. She is as white as they come.

      It should be, but Condaleeza pretty much throws your theory down the toilet.

      If only it was true that it was still a club for white men only. A man can dream right?
