The Short Game documetary follows the best 7 year old golfers from around the world as they descend on the world famous Pinehurst Golf course in North Carolina to determine the next world champion and who might become golf’s next phenomenon.
Most of these young prodigies have been holding clubs since before they could walk.
Augusta National Golf Club adds 1st 2 female members
AP: Augusta National Golf Club has female members for the 1st time in 80 years. The home of the Masters has invited former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore to become the 1st women at the club when it opens for a new season in October. Both women have accepted the invite.
The club’s chairman described the announcement as a “joyous occasion.”

Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years.

How can the PGA hold a tournament - one of the most important tournaments in the PGA Tour - at a blatantly sexist course? Millions and millions of dollars pour into Augusta’s coffers while it continues to discriminate against women.
Last year, after the Tiger Woods sex scandal, Augusta National chairman Billy Payne said of Tiger, ”It is simply not the degree of his conduct that is so egregious here. It is the fact that he disappointed all of us, and more importantly, our kids and our grandkids. Our hero did not live up to the expectations of the role model we saw for our children.”
Well, Billy, I would say that you and every member of your organization continually disappoints your granddaughters (and grandsons) with your blatant misogyny.
