AUGUSTA, Ga. -- More drenching rainfall and more fallout from the challenge to its all-male membership policy muddied the picture at the normally serene and meticulously groomed Augusta National Golf Club yesterday on the eve of the 67th Masters. Club chairman Hootie Johnson showed his weariness with the long-running membership controversy at a news conference. But he made it clear the members of Augusta have no intention of giving in to Martha Burk, chairman of the National Council of Women's Organizations, who has demanded since last June that females be allowed to join the exclusive men's golf club.

I have seen some great sights at the Eastpoint Mall over the years -- the ear-piercing pagoda and the giant swimming pool with the you-hook-em trout come immediately to mind -- but I'm told they've come up with a yuletide lollapalooza for the holidays. Would you believe 14-foot-tall snow domes? (Snow domes are those liquid-filled glass things with little plastic scenes inside; you shake them and snow swirls. You know what I'm talking about now?) The Becker Group of mall-decorating geniuses came up with this.

Give clubs the power Sam Farmer Los Angeles Times Of course the NFL should be able to fine players for what and when they post something on Twitter. Playing professional football isn't an inalienable right, it's a privilege. And the league — like a private club — can lay down reasonable rules to protect its product. That said, it should be the individual clubs in most cases, and not league headquarters, issuing the fines. For the most part, the NFL can and does recognize many forms of social media as effective marketing tools.

One Saturday in the near future, amateur golfer Mike Ford will tee it up for the first time this spring. If all goes according to plan, he will arrive at the course early, stretch, take a few practice swings and, when it's his turn, try to smack one down the middle of the fairway. The only difference is this year, for the first time since 1997, Ford won't be doing it at the Hillendale Country Club. Instead, having recently surrendered his membership, he'll be playing at one of the 120-plus Maryland golf courses open to the public.

When the United States Golf Association packed up its corporate tents after the 2002 Senior Open concluded, Caves Valley returned to its roots as a private club that was selective in the tournaments it hosted. Mandated to promote the amateur ranks, the Owings Mills club welcomed a handful of events in the intervening years - none involving professionals. That will change in the summer of 2014, when the Ladies Professional Golf Association's inaugural International Crown comes to Baltimore County for a four-day, match-play event featuring four-player teams from eight different countries.
