Report: Third Female Member Joins Augusta

MAKE IT A THREESOME. Augusta National Golf Club has admitted another female member.

Golf Digest's Sam Weinman reported:
IBM CEO Virginia (Ginni) Rometty has joined Condoleezza Rice and Darla Moore as the third female member of the longtime home of the Masters, multiple sources have confirmed. Yahoo! founder Jerry Yang is also among the handful of new members at Augusta National. 
Rice, the former Secretary of State, and Moore, a finance executive, were invited to be Augusta's first female members in 2012.
Weinman also reported that two Augusta members spotted the IBM CEO hitting balls on the Augusta driving range last Friday.

"She has a nice swing," a member said.

Golf Digest also published Rometty's handicap index, which is 35.4. Her last posted score was 116 more than a year ago.
