Bloomberg: ANGC Faces A "Quandary"

With IBM promoting Ginni Rometty to CEO after Sam Palmisano's retirement, Bloomberg's Beth Jinks and Michael Buteau suggest the club will once again face questions about its all-male membership since IBM CEO's have traditionally been members and the company is a tournament partner.

Rometty, who does play golf, though not frequently, inherited the sponsorship from predecessor Sam Palmisano. IBM is featured in the tournament’s TV commercials and runs its website, mobile-phone applications and media-center technology. Palmisano serves on Augusta’s technology tournament committee. He remains IBM’s chairman -- a role Rometty is likely also to assume upon his retirement.
