Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results and will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early to late evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
For many years prior, Augusta National Golf Club (home course of the Masters tournament), had come under fire for its membership policies. At one point, the club had a policy requiring all caddies be black, and did not admit its first African-American member until 1990. The club started receiving pressure in 2002 to admit female members (and pressure on corporate sponsors caused a couple of Masters tournaments to be broadcast commercial-free), but did not do so until 2012 when it admitted Rice and Moore.
