I’m sure this needs no repeating, but I will do it anyway — Fuck the masters and everything and everyone associated with it.
Unlikely that TK will even acknowledge the recent controversies around the Georgia voting law. And he CERTAINLY won't agree with any notion that it should affect anything he cares about, like the Masters.

. The retirement of North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams 3 last week inspired a salute from his longtime Duke rival, Mike Krzyzewski — who celebrated Williams as a man who not only cared about the game, “but more importantly, the people who played it.”
So then why did Williams plead total ignorance when it came to light that his UNC career and successes were in part predicated on systemic academic fraud 3in maintaining player eligibility through high marks in no-show, no-work classes?
How is it possible he cared most “about the people” who played for him when he didn’t know or perhaps even care if his recruits would leave UNC with a functional education, starting with the ability to read and write?
How did his star guard Rashad McCants make the academic Dean’s List — four A’s in his four classes — when, by his own admission, he didn’t attend a single class? Or was that for perfect attendance at practice?
As the college’s highest paid employee, didn’t that matter to Williams or UNC?
Save it, Coach K. You’re full of it, and I suspect you know it.
