The USGA, R&A, and the PGA are all governing bodies of golf in some fashion. That obligates them to host championship tournaments for both men and women. But the Masters is an invitational tournament put on, and controlled entirely, by one golf club. In that sense, it is a niche tournament, which, despite its outsized stature, owes nothing to anyone except the members of the club. Live with it.
