eorgia's Augusta National Golf Club, one of the world's most exclusive clubs and the home of the Masters tournament, said Monday it is admitting its first two female members, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (pictured) and business executive Darla Moore. Augusta's male-only policy has long been criticized, most recently at the start of this year's Masters in April, when club chairman Billy Payne was peppered with questions about the lack of women, after Virginia Rometty, the first female CEO of IBM, the tournament's sponsor company, was not invited to join. Augusta National traditionally invites IBM's chief executives into the club.
