Georgia voting debate reaches the Masters and Augusta National

Golfers arriving for The Masters at Augusta National on Monday were nudged into addressing Georgia’s new voting restrictions debate, but tried to steer clear of the controversy including Major League Baseball’s decision to remove the All-Star Game from Atlanta over the issue. The Masters is the year’s first golf major and one of the most popular annual sports events. Often described as Spring Break for CEOs, the tournament is a magnet for America’s corporate elite, some of whom belong to Augusta National, which has gone to great lengths in the past to shield its members.
