Augusta National, Masters home, ripped for allowing LIV golfers in

USA News

Augusta National Golf Club’s decision to allow Saudi-backed LIV golfers to play in next spring’s Masters tournament was strongly criticized Tuesday as a “coward’s reaction” by the national chair of 9/11 Families United, who vowed that her survivors’ group will protest at the tournament. 

“It’s really horrifying to see that it’s going to be played out at the Masters in Augusta, the one place I would have hoped to have never seen them be able to play,” said Terry Strada, whose husband Tom was killed in the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, and who has spent months speaking out against the golfers who have chosen to participate in the new, exhibition-style golf league controversially backed by Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman.
