Fox Sports – The newest members of America’s most famous private golf club, Stanford University provost and former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore, have been under consideration for a long time. The AP reported that Rice’s name was first floated five years ago.
By letting the membership process play out the way it always has – quietly and on the club’s private schedule – Payne successfully moved Augusta National where it needed to be without appearing to cave to outside pressure.
The statement the chairman put out Monday when he called the addition of these women to the membership, “a joyous occasion” sounded more like the Billy Payne who worked his way up from hardscrabble Georgia football from a poor family to one of the most famous men in the southeast.
“We are fortunate to consider many qualified candidates for membership at Augusta National,” Payne said. “Consideration with regard to any candidate is deliberate, held in strict confidence and always takes place over an extended period of time. The process for Condoleezza and Darla was no different.”
Okay. At first when I heard this, I just about shit. I thought they said Augusta was allowing women to join. So I did a little internet search and found out there is nothing to worry about, these old bastards pulled it out. They managed to find two “women” manlier than Chaz Bono. Everyone knows Condoleeza Rice has a bigger dick than Tiger.
