    Augusta National earns temporary victory as auction site removes green jackets

    Green Jacket Auctions has temporarily complied with a demand from Augusta National Golf Club to remove three green jackets from its bidding site, including Byron Nelson's jacket that was likely going to fetch $150,000 or more. The auction site didn't really have a choice, though, after ANGC filed a lawsuit and a judge agreed with the club. Here is the report from ESPN.
