No American shirts sold in pro shop



On April 6 I experienced a tremendous high as I entered the Augusta National Golf Club for the first time. Then came a terrible low when I entered the pro shop and could not find an American-made golf shirt out of at least 40 different styles.

I could not help but wonder how many textile facilities could remain in operation with this account alone. When you shop, buy American. The job you save may be your own.

If we continue to buy imported goods, where will our children work?
