Sure, #TheMasters were cool…but have you tried:

1️⃣Increasing taxes on privately owned golf courses,

2️⃣Using the resulting revenue to build affordable housing, and

3️⃣Decommissioning public golf courses to put public housing on them?

(a thread)🏌🏻‍♂️
There are a number of privately owned golf courses in Seattle, including the 55-acre Sand Point Country Club, which is located in my district.

Data about these courses--and the housing around them--is available from the King County Assessor's public database.
Data compiled by @PoulChapman and my campaign policy director @ItsKelseyHamlin show that these country clubs are unfairly taxed at a dramatically smaller rate than the one that people in the area (and beyond) pay on their homes.

1/ Earlier today, Tiger Woods won fifth Masters - his first since 2005. Woods has not been victorious in a Major since the 2008 US Open.
2/ Tiger, has who has fifteen Majors wins to his credit - is second only to Jack Nicklaus' eighteen. Some are already calling Tiger's comeback the greatest in sports history.

Don't know if it's been brought up, but @F_Molinari is the seventh player to shoot 13-under or better through 54 holes at @TheMasters. Of the other six, only Greg Norman (1996) failed to win. #TheMasters
Here's a list of the other six that shot 13-under or better through 54 holes at @TheMasters:

16-under: Jordan Spieth (2015)
15-under: Ray Floyd (1976), Tiger Woods (1997)
14-under: Jack Nicklaus (1965)
13-under: Seve Ballesteros (1980), Greg Norman (1996)

#TheMasters
Of note, the best any of the previous six players to shoot 13-under or better through 54 holes shot in the final round was a 69, which Nicklaus (1965) and Woods (1997) did. Floyd (1976) and Spieth (2015) shot 70, Ballesteros (1980) shot 72, and Norman (1996) shot 78. #TheMasters

You wonder if the 2019 @TheMasters could be like 2015 all over again. With the leaders all going out early tomorrow, it could be a situation where those that have late tee times tomorrow might be out of the hunt before they even tee off. #TheMasters
For example, if Brooks Koepka or Bryson DeChambeau shoot another 66 for a 12-under par 132, nobody with a late tee time will be within 9 shots of the lead, which could effectively put those with late tee times tomorrow out of the hunt before they even tee off. #TheMasters
That's exactly what happened in 2015. When Jordan Spieth set a new 36-hole record of 130, he effectively locked up the tournament when he walked off the 18th green Fri. afternoon. He was 9 shots ahead of any of the Friday afternoon starters before they even teed off. #TheMasters
