IBM is a major Masters sponsor and Augusta “has a history of inviting the company’s top executive to join its club.”"

    FANTASTIC "Hole-in-One" article Richard. :-)

    Thanks for writing it, and even for going to the trouble of mentioning many of us in the content! :-)

    Richard a good article; but I am not in agreement with it. I found a couple of viewpoints online that I think more closely reflects my views on the matter.

The Bloomberg editorial in particular more broadly reflects my views.
