Burk Plans Another Round

Martha Burk, chairwoman of the National Council of Women's Organizations, said yesterday she will escalate her campaign to have women admitted to Augusta National Golf Club in the next two weeks. Burk plans another letter-writing campaign to about 30 prominent members, most of whom are corporate executives who have not responded to her previous letter requesting their written positions on the issue....

Burk plans to create web sites advertising the membership of corporate leaders and others, and highlighting the contrast between Augusta's policy and diversity requirements elsewhere. Suppose I should forward her a list of women's colleges.

I was very disappointed to see some of my favorite LPGA players on the Golf Channel, including Annika Sorenstam and Karrie Webb, backing LPGA commisioner Votaw's tirade against the policy. Many of the women focused on the importance of "moving on." In other words, they're personally aggravated by the distraction. Too bad.

Votaw says the LPGA is "close to" ending its policy that bars men from being LPGA teachers.
