Rice shows off her green jacket at Augusta National

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was seen in her green jacket Sunday just before the start of this year's Masters.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Augusta National's newest member — former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice — is getting her first chance to show off her new green jacket this week.

Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore made history in August when they became the first women invited to join the home of the Masters, which begins play Thursday.

Even though Rice has been a member for more than seven months, it was no less striking to see her in the jacket that for eight decades had been worn only by men.
