Female Reporter Denied Access to Locker Room

Filed under: Uncategorized — rhartman4 @ 12:58 pm

According to the Associated Press, a female columnist, Tara Sullivan, of The Record in Hackensack, NJ was denied access to the locker room for a post-tournament interview at the Masters.  Augusta National officials have apologized about the incident, stating that they will work “as hard as we can to make sure it does not happen again”.  Sullivan, along with other reporters, were going to interview Rory McIlroy when the incident happened.

In the past, numerous other female reporters have said that they were allowed access to the locker room for interviews. As we know, if the locker room is open, both men and women reporters are allowed in.
