For the first time in its 80-year history, Augusta National Golf Club has female members.
The home of the Masters, under increasing criticism the last decade because of its all-male membership, invited former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore to become the first women in green jackets when the club opens for a new season in October.
Both women accepted.
Congratulations to the two new members. I can’t say that I am surprised by the invite, but maybe a little disappointed. Nothing against the women folk but men need places of their own too. I mean women have all kinds of places to themselves, Lucille Roberts, Michael Bolton concerts, kitchens. All kinds of places. All we had was Augusta National and the bathroom.
Now all we have is the bathroom. Wait…
“I’ll be out in a minute honey!”
