Barkley owes apology to Masters



I feel Charles Barkley owes the Augusta National a big apology. Yes, I am white, but Tiger Woods was one of the three people I wanted to win the Master's. The other two were Phil Mikelson and anyone who has never won before.

Mr. Woods himself stated that Mr. Barkley just "likes to run his mouth too much."

I am just trying to figure out how you people feel the course was changed to hurt Mr. Woods? Every person playing that game has an equal chance at winning, just as in football or baseball or any other sport.

So instead of making this such a racial issue, just shut up about it and get on with your own life. Think and worry about yourself more than others.
