Augusta National Accepts Female Members: More Reaction

In case you haven't heard yet, the Augusta National Golf Club finally admitted its first two female members on Monday: former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and businesswoman Darla Moore.

It's a landmark day for Augusta, but not all of the reaction to Augusta National Golf Club has been glowingly positive.

Emily Kay, one of SB Nation's golf writers, has a piece regarding the reaction by the media to Augusta's decision. Kay herself believed that Anthony De Rosa put it best.

As Kay pointed out, much of the reaction around Twitter has been sarcastic, including this quip from ESPN's Rick Reilly.

Sarcasm aside, it is an historic day for Augusta -- and one that people should move forward with.
