PGA appoints first female captain

The British PGA broke with 104 years of tradition Monday, appointing its first female captain.

Beverly Lewis, also a qualified referee with the Royal & Ancient Club, will be an ambassador for the PGA and represent the membership at all official functions and major golf events, including the four majors.

``This is an amazing honor and I couldn't have been more surprised than if someone had asked me to be queen,'' said Lewis, a founder member of the British women's PGA and one of the first female professionals to gain PGA membership.

``I am delighted to be in a position to champion women's golf as well as having the opportunity to make a difference within the professional circles of the game.''
