LPGA Players Paula Creamer and Brittany Lincicome are really pushing for a Women’s Masters at Augusta National.
Creamer proposes a back-to-back women’s tournament with the famous men’s tournament in April.
As Paula recently tweeted, “…. The fastest area of golf growth is women!” She mentions the Drive, Chip, and Putt tournament at Augusta that gives kids a chance to experience this famous place. That Junior Tournament has caught the attention of youngsters nation-wide and is helping to generate more golfers.
Is it time to expand the whole Master’s experience to include professional women players?
Tell me what you think!
Paula Creamer is calling for a women’s Masters at Augusta National.
Creamer would love for organizers to at least listen to the idea of women playing a Masters in consecutive weeks with the men’s tournament. She reiterated her thoughts Tuesday at Lake Merced Golf Club, where the Bay Area native is preparing for this week’s Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic.
“I’ve been there, I’ve played there, stayed in Butler’s Cabin,” said Creamer, the 2010 U.S. Women’s Open champion. “I had an awesome time. I think the patrons and everybody would love to have two weeks there, two tournaments. Why wouldn’t you? Hopefully, we will see something change and happen.”
While she hasn’t heard from anyone official at Augusta, there has been plenty of positive feedback since she made the comments. She wants to be part of golf taking steps to recruit the next generation of young players.
