FILE - This April 4, 2007 file photo shows Billy Payne, chairman of the Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters golf tournament, addressing the media at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga. For the first time in it's 80-year history, Augusta National Golf Club has female members. The home of the Masters, under increasing criticism the last decade because of its all-male membership, invited former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore to become the first women in green jackets when the club opens for a new season in October. This is a joyous occasion, Payne said Monday, Aug. 20, 2012. (AP Photo/Chris O'Meara, FIle)
