Who's winning the battle, Hootie Johnson or Martha Burk? SI's Hootometer tells all.
Georgia governor Sonny Perdue suggests Augusta National should admit women, and Jimmy Carter says Hootie should have handled conflict in more "harmonious way." Advantage, Burk. Burk likens dispute to war in Iraq. Advantage, Hootie. Augusta sheriff Ronnie Strength rules Burk can't protest on sidewalk outside main gate because it's "too dangerous," and orders her to move protest one third of a mile away. Advantage, Hootie. Burk, through the ACLU, appeals in federal court, leaving Hootometer wavering in last days before Masters showdown.
