Augusta National should host a Women’s Masters

Paula Creamer, a 10 times winner of the LPGA Tour and champion of the 2010 U.S. Woman’s Open, tweeted that she is hoping that Augusta will host a woman’s Masters in the near future. After many protests, Augusta National Golf Club allowed its first female members in 2012. This club welcomed business executive Darla Moore and Condoleezza Rice. Last year, they had a third female member, Virginia Rometty, an IBM chief executive. It also crowned the first female champion ever. The champion was Kelly Xu, a 9-year-old golfer, who won her division at Augusta in a junior competition. This happened before last year’s Masters. Other three divisions were won by girls.

Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews and Scotland’s Royal (260 years old) admitted their female members last year. Sadly, some clubs in the US and UK are still closed. On the other side, St. Andrews hosted the Women’s British Open two times. Maybe it is the time that Augusta starts doing the same thing. At this moment, having a women’s Masters is a remote possibility. As you know, LPGA plays 5 major tournaments every year, so it may not be interested in a new tournament. Recently, Billy Payne, Augusta chairman, announced that he had the same question last year and the year before, and his answer is always the same. Apparently, they have a very short member season that lasts only 7 months. Because of that, they simply don’t have enough time that is needed for conduct and preparation of the tournament. According to Payne’s statements, they wouldn’t host another tournament ever.
