THE WORLD'S FEMALE GOLFERS from lucyweiweiwei's blog

What the 2010 US Open champion did not have, however, was the backing of Augusta National. Namely, chairman Dolphins Youth Jersey Billy Payne, who said in response: “I don’t think so. I believe I had that question last year or the year before. We have a very short member season at Augusta National, it’s seven months only. The time that we dedicate to the preparation and conduct of the tournament is already extensive. I don’t think that we would ever host another tournament here.” The Masters is bathed in tradition: the par-three contest on Wednesday afternoon, where players have their spouses, parents, friends, or children caddy for them; the pink azaleas dotting the course; Butler’s Cabin; the white caddie jumpsuits; the pimento cheese sandwich; and last but not least, Amen Corner. So exalted has the Masters become in the public consciousness that getting tickets is damn near impossible, unless you know a player … or God. In fact, it’s a long-running rumor that many lapsed churchgoers only rediscovered their faith in the hopes that Masters tickets would suddenly fall into their hands.

I understand that a lot goes into it, that one week DeAndre' Bembry Authentic Jersey  and planning. The golf course is shut down. But I think it can handle two weeks at a time, whether it’s a week apart or back to back.” Members of Augusta National only play there a handful of times a year, with most of the millionaires and billionaires on their rolls playing far more frequently at courses in the cities where they live. The member season is short due to the Masters, but introduction of a women’s event wouldn’t shorten it in any significant way. male golfers in the world tee it up for a bid at history. It’s where legends such as Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Jack Nicklaus all  hoisted the trophy, and were draped with an oversized green jacket. It’s where Tiger Woods broke his maiden with his epochal, record-shattering win 20 years ago, clapping back at Augusta’s blatant and known racism in the most satisfying way imaginable. The first of men’s golf’s four bedrock events in any given year, it sets the tone for the rest of the season.
