What you need to understand about Augusta National Golf Course's decision to admit women for the first time is this: It was never about golf. For those who supported the 80-year-old home of the Masters, it was about the right of a private club to choose its members on its own terms. It was about, for example, Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates reportedly being denied consideration for a time (he is a member now) because he made it known that he wanted to be a member. For those who found the exclusion of women unsupportable and unseemly — the club finally admitted black men only in 1990 — it was about power and access.

The Masters golf tournament, held annually at the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia, is on a collision course with reality. Here's the dilemma: The tradition-rich club is, and always has been, a men-only venue. One of their three main sponsors, IBM, has a female CEO, Virginia Rometty. This is the part where it gets a bit sticky. The four previous CEOs of IBM, all obviously males, held memberships at the club. To add a bit of fuel to the mix was Augusta National's Chairman Billy Payne's deflection of questions posed to him about the club's stodgy, antiquated rules of admission.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- There's no prescribed procedure to be followed for entering a membership application to the Augusta National Golf Club. You must be asked.It's not necessary to be a low-handicap golfer or to have been born into a wealthy family. The only pre-requisites are you must enjoy the game and be regarded as a gentleman.Rules are adhered to with obsessive intensity. Hord Hardin, chairman of the club, notified one of his best friends, the late John Ames, he was no longer a member of Augusta National because he showed up on two occasions (first it was a warning)

GOLF AS a symbol of white, male corporate America can always stand to have its cage rattled, so it's tough not to appreciate the debate a woman named Martha Burk spawned by taking on Augusta National Golf Club. Of course, in sports, a feminist debate is the most unwelcome topic this side of homosexuality. It's not so much taboo as it is loathed. For instance, how many golf insiders/writers/players/watchers have you heard during the past five months say they wish this whole Augusta story would just disappear?

Nearly a year ago, I wrote that Tiger Woods could become the next Ken Griffey Jr ., a transcendant athlete who turned mortal before rewriting the history books of their respective sports. Instead of breaking their sport's most sacred record, they broke down physically. I said at the time that I didn't think Woods would win another major championship, and maybe not another regular PGA Tour event. Woods recently proved me wrong on one account - his 5-shot win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill two weeks ago reminiscent of many of his 71 previous tour victories.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Nick Watney won a World Golf Championships event last month. He has taken a lead into the final round of a major and worked his way around Augusta National a few times over the years. This week, that qualifies the California native as someone worth watching. And to Watney's lament, not much else. "I wish," he quipped, "that if they mention your name before the tournament, you could start 2-under par or something. " Even that might leave the top of the Masters leaderboard top-heavy as its 75th edition tees off Thursday.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Within an hour of Tiger Woods' announcement last week that he would return to play the Masters, a prominent British bookmaker installed him as the 4-to-1 favorite. Four-to-1 for a guy who hasn't been fitted for a green jacket since 2005, who has not played a competitive round in four months, who just might be reminded of his personal flaws as he takes back the blade on a hellacious 6-footer? (TIGER is a CHEETAH T-shirt sold separately.) Seems absurd to me - and to a chunk of players on the PGA Tour.

For decades, minority golfers from Lee Elder to Lee Trevino didn't feel entirely comfortable playing the Masters. But in choosing the venue for his return to competitive golf, Tiger Woods appears to have found his perfect match. The athlete who longs to control everything will tee it up at a club that restricts media riffraff and prides itself on having the most courteous "patrons" in sports. It's also where Woods scored his transcendent victory in 1997, plus triumphs in 2001, 2002 and 2005.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -As the Masters prepares to get under way, teenagers Rory McIlroy, Ryo Ishikawa and Danny Lee could do something the 20-something crowd has not - provide Tiger Woods with a meaningful, lasting rival. Maybe Sergio Garcia, Adam Scott and Camilo Villegas, who have zero major victories, will get lapped by the likes of McIlroy, 19, a native of Northern Ireland who is ranked 17th in the world and shot an opening-round 68 at the 2007 British Open at Carnoustie. "Rory must use Tiger as a role model and raise the bar," said Gary Player, who will be competing Thursday in his 52nd, and final, Masters.
