Why would the NY Times mention that the Masters, in addition to being a great sporting event, is also “the world’s great attractions for business executives who bring along their most valued customers and clients”? I have not read the article, but based on this statement it does not seem that the NY Times is trying very hard to support their own desire for Augusta National to admit women. While it may not be fair that there are far fewer women executives who play golf and bring their clients to golf tournaments, I would believe it is a fairly accurate statement. This being said, so far, the NY Times has failed to provide readers with a worthwhile reason for the club to admit women.

In response to an earlier post– thanks for the suggestion, but I do not plan to convert.
