Their day at Augusta National

So what do LPGA players do during a long break in the schedule? Two of them played Augusta National on Tuesday.

Angela Stanford shot even-par 72, Kristy McPherson a one-over par 73. Each put a ball in Rae's Creek, Stanford at 12 and McPherson at 13.

"I feel like a kidding waiting for Santa," Stanford wrote on Twitter the day before.

"Boy, am I nervous," she wrote on Tuesday morning.

"Well my friends Augusta was all I expected and more! We played the par 3 course first, lunch, then played National," she wrote afterward.

They played with Augusta National member Fleming Norvell, an Augusta native who played college golf at Auburn and helped establish the women's golf program at Augusta State University.
