“While we aim to stage a first-class championship our motivation goes beyond the scores posted between the ropes” Augusta National Chairman Fred Ridley said in a press release.
Fujikawa 27 posted a picture to Instagram accompanied by a caption explaining his decision to come out. He told Outsports that he had not come out to anyone in the professional golf world until Tuesday’s post. “The love and support have been overwhelming” he said.
With the 2019 Masters beginning the following week this is a great opportunity to see Augusta National at its best under tournament conditions.
