Condoleezza Rice Joins Augusta National

It took decades of debate, and far too much controversy, but Monday, the all-male Augusta National Golf Club made history, finally opening its doors to female members.

The first two women admitted:  former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and business executive Darla Moore.

Augusta National Chairman Billy Payne called the selection of the two new members "a joyous occasion" and a "significant and positive time in our club's history."

Rice, who served as secretary of state under President George W. Bush, said in a statement released by the club, "I have visited Augusta National on several occasions and look forward to playing golf, renewing friendships and forming new ones through this very special opportunity."
