PAR FOR THE COURSE Nick Paumgarten superbly describes the cultlike underbelly of Augusta National—the prudish, humorless attitudes of its leaders and the self-satisfaction of its patrons (“Unlike Any Other,” June 24th). But, year after year, the Masters golf tournament has been a stage for human drama and remarkable achievements under pressure. In my view, the artifice, exclusivity, and privilege that exist behind the scenes do not spoil the captivating power of one of the greatest sporting events in the world. Don GreifNew York City I am a golfer now in my seventh decade. Augusta National has always seemed to me an unattainable fantasy, the Mecca of the golfing universe. Reading Paumgarten’s chronicle of its excesses, I was troubled to realize that I have chosen to ignore its many defects, much as I have…

goings on about town: this week

Roberto Burle Marx (1909-94) was a Brazilian polymath whose highest calling was designing landscapes, most famously the mosaic path that swirls along two miles of Copacabana Beach, in Rio de Janeiro. “Brazilian Modern: The Living Art of Roberto Burle Marx,” at the New York Botanical Garden, includes paintings, drawings, and textiles, but its fragrant centerpiece is an immersive tropical oasis (pictured), designed in homage to Burle Marx by his American protégé, Raymond Jungles. On view through Sept. 29. THE THEATRE Dragon Spring Phoenix Rise The Shed Cooked up by the director Chen Shi-Zheng and the “Kung Fu Panda” franchise screenwriters, Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger, this martial-arts musical concerns itself with a harebrained tale of competing Queens clans fighting over … it’s unclear what. The production certainly looks as if it cost a pretty…

tables for two: hanon

In some respects, it’s easy to understand why udon, the Japanese white-flour noodle, has never approached the popularity or the ubiquity of ramen, or even of soba. It’s thick and dense; it can be gummy, rubbery; it does not seem especially healthy. In the past few years, a small flurry of house-made-udon shops have opened in New York, among them TsuruTonTan, a sprawling, noisy brasserie that also specializes in sushi, and Raku, a more discreet parlor with two outposts downtown. Much of what distinguishes Hanon, a new udon restaurant steps from the L and G trains in central Williamsburg, has to do with the noodles themselves, which are made thinner than usual, with sharper edges and a consistently springy, al-dente finish. Staff from Hanon’s other location, in Kamakura, Japan, have come…

comment: the health-care defense

One of the central questions of the 2020 Presidential campaign was posed last week before the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, in New Orleans, to a lawyer for the Trump Administration, who didn’t even pretend to have an answer. A three-judge panel was hearing the appeal of a ruling by Reed O’Connor, a Texas district-court judge, that the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, was unconstitutional in its entirety—an opinion that the Administration has endorsed. O’Connor had ordered that the government cease implementing or enforcing all aspects of the A.C.A., including its protections for people with preëxisting conditions, its ban on lifetime caps, its expansion of Medicaid and coverage for young adults on their parents’ plan, and its support for the treatment of addiction. The order could cost tens…

sewing circle: dissent by doily

Last month, two days after Donald Trump tweeted that NASA should be focussing on “Mars (of which the Moon is a part),” Macy Weymar, a sophomore at McGill University, embroidered his words onto a linen napkin with blue thread. That afternoon, Macy’s mother, the textile artist Diana Weymar, was on a ladder at Lingua Franca, a boutique in downtown Manhattan, pinning hundreds of other handstitched Trump quotations to the wall for the first New York exhibition of the Tiny Pricks Project. She held up her fingers, which were bandaged from pinpricks. “It’s like I’m putting the finishing touches on the hem of a giant dress,” she said. Weymar, who is petite and scholarly, with blond hair and large brown eyes, founded the Tiny Pricks Project last year. Her first piece was…
