The Masters gets a Touch of Grace

For those of you that are golf fans, you have most likely heard the latest news - for the first time in the 80 year history of August National, they have invited a women {or two to be exact} to wear the famous green jackets. Kudos to August National Chairman, Billy Payne! 

"These accomplished women share our passion for the game of golf and both are well known and respected by our membership," Payne said in a statement. "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." ~ Billy Payne

The first two women to wear the famous green jackets will be, former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore.
