In a game in which perception is paramount, somebody may point out one day, for example, that the acceptance of two female members at Augusta is not a human rights triumph, just a way to exclude even more people now that women can also be snubbed due to income and social status.

They might also realize that the PGA Championship doesn’t need the goofy “Glory’s Last Shot” nickname that has apparently been put it out of its misery. That catchphrase was just a defence against the insecurity of it being called the weak link among majors by some.

That perception is also a misconception popularized by propaganda surrounding the other three majors.

The Masters arrives and it’s game on to start of the season amid the dogwoods and azaleas at Augusta and tales of Bobby Jones and green jackets. There’s the tradition of the British Open with its national open status like the U.S. Open and its notorious, devious set-ups.
