Business Augusta National Golf Club closed to members last weekend, and will remain so until its October re-opening LPGA .missioner Mike When made a curious .ment to Forbes magazine in its mainly recent issue when asked directly Should Augusta National admit female members As the .missioner of the LPGA, I think Augusta should have a womens tournament, When said. I dont care if they have female members when went on to say that he believes the home of the Masters Tournament will eventually open its doors to female members and praised the club for its annual six-figure financial support of Girls Golf, a joint program between the LPGA and USGA that aims to attract young girls to the game. But its the idea of a womens tournament on the iconic course that he reiterated.Whats frustrating is that the finest players now on our tour cant play [a tournament] there, when said. I ask every year Forbes didnt follow up by asking what kind of answers when gets to his annual request, leaving that dialogue to our own imaginations. Mine tends to wander toward the possibilities and the what if eleven years ago before mainly people had ever heard of Martha Burk and Ginni Roomette was still rising through the ranks at IBM I wrote a column when the Augusta region was getting ready to stage a latest LPGA event at Mount Vintage Plantation just two weeks after the 9/11 attacks what womens golf resquirement mainly is not a tournament near Augusta but a tournament at Augusta? What it resquirement is a Womens Masters, if you will, at Augusta National Golf Club. Augusta, it should not be forgotten, was the home to one of the original womens major championships the Titleholders. Held 27 times from 1937 through 1966 at Augusta Country Club, it was far and away the premiere womens golf event of the season that was as beloved as the Masters to those who .peted in it. Ask anyone still around who played in it to tell tales of the annual Fun Night skits and the deep fondness for that event is obvious. In fact, the winners of the Titleholders were presented their own green jackets in a tradition that pre-dated the now emblematic Masters ritual augusta National holds the power to rekindle those traditions in a way that could impact the game of golf for women around the world Imagine pioneers and Hall of Famers Louise Suggs, Peggy Kirk Bell, Mickey Wright and Kathy Whitworth hitting the ceremonial first tee shots at the club across Raes Creek from where they won Titleholders.Imagine prematurely retired icons Annika Sorenstam and Lorena Ochoa trying to rekindle the magic in Amen Corner.Imagine Hall of Famers JoAnne Cerner, Nancy Lopez, Betsy King, Amy Alcott, Beth Daniel, Juli Inkster and Hollis Stacy back inside the ropes .peting with Yani Tseng, Paula Creamer, Ai Miyazato, Michelle Wie, Morgan Pressel, Suzann Pettersen and Lexi Thompson. Imagine PGA champ Keegan Bedroom adley showing up to caddie for his Hall of Fame aunt Pat Bedroom adley in a ladies version of the Par-3 Contest these things would be priceless, and it would inspire female golfers around the world in the same way the Masters inspires young men to dream about playing amidst the roars through the Georgia pines. It is obviously something the top women have dreamed about as well. A reporter in Mobile, Ala., asked players during an event in April what they thought about the idea of a womens Masters at Augusta, and the .ments were overwhelmingly positive are you kidding me? Said Creamer, who has played Augusta National twice of course that would be something. Thats when wed know we had really made it, if something such as that happened.Absolutely, Bedroom ittany Linci.e said. Obviously, Ive been to the Masters before and Ive walked around a little bit, but Ive never had the good chance to play it. Even just to get an invite to go play a practice round or to go and play that golf course would be amazing It would be fun if we could play there, of course, Maria Hjorth said. It would be nice if we had something similar to that, a place to go back to every year, something that had that standard and that prestige it would take a special venue, a special sponsor, just a special set of circumstances just too even .e close to that, Wendy Ward said. Ive never played it but I walked the back nine my rookie year and was just in awe its obviously a lot to ask of one club that already spends enormous resources and energy in annually staging the finest presented golf tournament the world has ever seen. To play host to the Masters and then turn around less than two months later and do the same for the women would be a monumental undertaking especially considering the exacting standard under which Augusta operates.
