Who's winning the battle, Hootie Johnson or Martha Burk? SI's Hootometer tells all.

A Harris poll found that only 34% of adults think the club is right to exclude women. Advantage: Burk. HBO's Real Sports reiterated what SI revealed in July: Burk's nickname as a kid was Hootie. Advantage: Hootie. The Augusta Chronicle, owned by Augusta member Billy Morris, moved a profile of Burk from Page One to page 10 and refused to run a piece urging the club to admit a woman. Advantage: Hootie.
