Richmond school system continues Masters badge inquiry

Richmond County School System officials said Wednesday they are continuing an investigation into how Masters Golf Tournament badges donated to local students ended up in the hands of ticket scalpers.

School spokesman Louis Svehla said top administrators are responsible for the investigation but have not announced any findings.

“We still have to get all the parties together and get all that (information), and that’s what they’re trying to do,” Svehla said. “We don’t have anything yet.”
Svehla said he did not know if the Augusta National Golf Club donates badges to schools as a yearly program or if it is an occasional gesture.

A spokesman for the Augusta National said Wednesday he would check into the school badge situation, but did not provide immediate details.
