LPGA pioneer Louise Suggs passes away

Estelle-Lawson-Page-and-Louise-Suggs-1942-1000x563

Louise Suggs hits a tee shot while Estelle Lawson Page watches during the 1942 North & South Women’s Amateur at Pinehurst. Suggs won the 1942, 1946 and 1948 North & South tournaments.

We’re deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Louise Suggs, a pioneer in women’s golf and a Pinehurst legend.

Suggs, the winner of the 1942, 1946 and 1948 North & South Women’s Amateur, was 91 years old.

Following three wins at Pinehurst and a victory in the 1947 U.S. Women’s Amateur, she went on to become a founding member of the LPGA in 1950. Throughout her career, she won 61 professional tournaments, including 11 major championships.

She was inducted into both the LPGA and World Golf Halls of Fame.

In 2007, Suggs received the Bob Jones Award, the USGA’s highest honor. The award is given in recognition of distinguished sportsmanship.

“Golf is very much like a love affair,” Suggs once said. “If you don’t take it seriously, it’s no fun, but if you do, it breaks your heart. Don’t break your heart, but flirt with the possibility.”

But to see them work their trick shot magic with the best player in the world, Rory McIlroy?

Yes, please.
