Augusta playing partners: Mickelson, Condi Rice

Tools

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Phil Mickelson has won three green jackets, and he was the one asking all the questions Sunday at Augusta National.

That's because Mickelson played a practice round with Condoleezza Rice, the former Secretary of State and one of the newest club members. Rice made history in Augusta when she and South Carolina financier Darla Moore were the first women invited to join Augusta.

Rice later donned her green jacket to meet with other members on the practice range.

She slipped away without taking questions. Members typically don't give interviews during the week of the Masters. Mickelson couldn't stop talking about her — especially her 40-foot par putt on the 18th hole. He says Rice asked him about courses, and he asked her about countries.
