The Golf Reporter For The New York Times Wants To Protest The Masters screenshot


New York Times golf reporter Karen Crouse doesn’t want to cover The Masters until Augusta lets in a female member.Here’s what she told yesterday:

“If it were left to me, which it seldom is in the power structure of writer versus editor, I’d probably not come cover this event again until there is a woman member. More and more, the lack of a woman member is just a blue elephant in the room.”

There’s a big difference between protesting something and saying you ought to protest something. She did, after all, write about the first round yesterday.

But it’s a good sign that a prominent person within the world of golf is speaking out about the issue.
