SERGIO WINS & AUGUSTA NATIONAL ADMITS WOMEN MEMBERS

 Sergio Garcia snapped a four-year PGA Tour title drought with victory at the rain-delayed Wyndham Championship in North Carolina on Monday that secured the Spaniard a spot on the European Ryder Cup team.

Garcia, who had a one-shot lead after four holes on Sunday when play was halted at Sedgefield Country Club because of rain and thunderstorms, shot a four-under 66 in the final round for an 18-under total, two shots clear of South African Tim Clark.


 Augusta National Golf Club announced today that they added two women members for the first time in the club's history.

Dr. Condoleezza Rice, 57, and Darla Moore, 58 were the selected women .Rice was National Security Advisor for the first term of George W. Bush's presidency and Secretary of State for the second. She is currently a professor of political science at Stanford University.

Moore is a partner in the private investment firm Rainwater Inc., founded by her husband Richard Rainwater.
