  • Augusta National announced that it has no plans to ban players on the controversial LIV Golf tour from next year’s Masters, but not everyone plans to greet them with open arms.
  • A prominent September 11 group, 9/11 Families United, said hours after the announcement from the exclusive club that it plans to protest at the tournament next April. LIV Golf is backed by Saudi Arabia.
  • “We are calling on Augusta National to reconsider their open-door policy to the LIV golfers,” the statement read, in part. “If they are welcomed with open arms, we will be at their front door to protest in April.”
