Condoleezza Rice and Darla Moore have become the first two female members of Augusta National Golf Club, the home of the Masters. Rice, the former Secretary of State is also Augusta’s first Cleveland Browns fan. Moore is the vice president of a private investment company. Augusta Chairman Billy Payne seemed pleased to welcome women into Augusta. Via USA Today:
“These accomplished women share our passion for the game of golf and both are well known and respected by our membership. It will be a proud moment when we present Condoleezza and Darla their Green Jackets when the Club opens this fall.
“This is a significant and positive time in our Club’s history and, on behalf of our membership, I wanted to take this opportunity to welcome them and all of our new members into the Augusta National family.”
Let’s all welcome Augusta into the 21st Century. [USA Today]
