Just so we're clear: we shouldn't really be giving Augusta *credit* for accepting women into the club in 2012.
The old white guys at Augusta finally have ladies tees to hit from.
Augusta finally lets Condi and one other lucky lady play golf there8/20/2012
The home of the Masters golf tournament has finally mastered progress (sort of). For the first time in its 80-year history, Augusta National Golf Club has invited two females (!) into its elite fold. You've probably heard of the first honoree: former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice. The second lady on the links, South Carolina businesswoman Darla Moore, may not be a household name, but she's probably pretty jazzed to gather on the greens with the big boys. This finally ends the decade-old controversy that began when the former chairman announced that the club would never break up its good-ol'-boys club. Better late than never, we say. Now how about upping those numbers, Augusta? We know. Baby steps. [Source]
