Martha Burk is back in golf, encouraging people to join a protest over the U.S. Womens Open being held next year at Trump National in New Jersey.She made the call for supporters in a blog for The Huffington Post on Friday.Burk rose to prominence in 2002 when she challenged Augusta National to end its discrimination by inviting a female member, suggesting it could become a problem at the Masters. The club chairman, Hootie Johnson, sent her a scathing reply that the club might one day have female members, but not at the point of a bayonet.Augusta National didnt budge in the wake of enormous pressure from Burk and the media, even going so far as to go commercial-free for the 2003 Masters. Burks protest fizzled in a grassy lot. Nine years later, the club added its first two women.Burk remains with the National Council of Womens Organizations as the director of its corporate accountability project.The USGA, PGA Tour, LPGA and PGA of America released a joint statement last August to distance themselves from Donald Trumps explosive comments about Mexican immigrants when he announced his campaign for president.The PGA of America canceled its Grand Slam of Golf exhibition at Trump National in Los Angeles.

However, the USGA has no standing over players at the Masters. It runs 13 championships, 10 of them restricted to amateurs.Burk said the USGA was putting profit over principle, and that the LPGA also was being silent on the decision.USGA spokeswoman Janeen Driscoll said the organization is focused on conducting the best championship we can for the players, the spectators, the fans and the volunteers, both this year and a year from now. She noted that Bedminster is in compliance with the USGAs anti-discriminatory member policy.During his presidential campaign, Mr. Trump has made some remarks that are at odds with our belief that golf should be welcoming and inclusive for all. We have reiterated that we do not share his views, and that is still true, she said in an email.The LPGA said all decisions about the venue for the U.S. Open are made by the USGA.We fully expect to keep the U.S. Womens Open on our 2017 schedule, and support the decisions made by the USGA on this matter, LPGA spokesman Kraig Kann said.Burk concluded her blog by posting a link to a petition to force the USGA to play next years Womens Open somewhere else.American golfer Gerina Pillar said she preferred to stay out of the debate.If its a good course, its a good course, she said from this years U.S. Womens Open. I dont really see getting into politics. Its just one of those things where if its a good course and they see it fit to host an event there, I think that thats OK.---AP Sports Writer Josh Dubow in San Martin, California, contributed to this report.
