Chairman of Augusta National Golf Club Billy Payne hosted a dinner this evening to announce that one of the first female Augusta members, Condoleezza Rice, is to receive the highest honor of the club by becoming the new worldwide face of the popular cereal grain.   

Augusta National Golf Club, which own and control all the world's supply of rice, confirmed that the former Secretary of State would represent both long and wholegrain rice as well as fronting up the highly popular boil in the bag variety.

Condoleeza will replace Uncle Ben as the face of rice in 486 countries from January 1st 2016.  In his speech Payne paid tribute to the smiling face of Uncle Ben and the work he had done over 60 years to reassure people across the planet that rice would not stick to the pan despite fears that some might.

"I have to admit, I was quite shocked when Chairman Payne asked me to become the new face of Rice" said Rice.  "But after 10 minutes I was ready," she added.
