Top Female Senior Golf Pros
Senior golf tournaments are not just for men. There are lots of women who play golf, many of them into their older years.
Patricia Jane Berg was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on February 13, 1918. Patricia first began golfing in 1931 and began an amateur career in 1934. That was the year she won her first title - Minneapolis City Championship. But it wasn't until the following year that she gained national attention when she reached the finals of the 1935 U.S. Women's Amateur. She lost to Glenna Collett Vare, another of the top five senior golfers (it was Vare's last amateur victory). Berg went on to win the Titleholders in 1937 and the Amateur in 1938. Berg ended up winning 29 amateur titles before she turned pro in 1940.
Her pro career was interrupted by a brief stint in World War II, where she was a lieutenant in the Marines. After the war, Berg not only helped establish the LPGA but she also became the first president of the organization. She ended up winning 57 events while on the LPGA and WPGA circuit and was runner-up in the 1956 and 1959 LPGA Championships. During her career, Berg won fifteen major titles which was and still remains the all-time record for most major wins by a female golfer.
Not only was Patricia Berg an inspiration because of how well she played the game, but she was given many honors for other things. In 1963, she was given the Bob Jones Award which is the highest honor given by the U.S. Golf Association. This was in recognition of her sportmanship throughout her career. The LPGA started the Patty Berg Award in 1978. Berg herself, along with PGA Tour player, Nolan Henke started the Nolan Henke/Patty Berg Junior Masters. This was done to help promote the development of young golf players. She also taught over 16,000 clinics in her lifetime.
Berg was not only an inspiration and role model on the golf course but off of it as well. Sadly, she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease in December 2004 and died from complications of the disease on September 10, 2020 at the age of 88.
Dorothy Iona Campbell was born on March 24, 1883 into a family of golfers. She began getting the feel of a golf club at the ripe age of 18 months old. Just a few years later, she was competing with her sisters. Campbell, who also went by the last names of Hurd, Howe and even Campbell Hurd Howe, was the first woman to win not only the American Women's Amateur Golf Championship but the Britisth and Canadian versions as well. She was the first internationally dominant female golfer.
During her golfing career, Campbell won 11 national amateur titles between the United States, Canada, Great Britain and Scotland. The last title came in 1924 when she was 41 years old. Technically, Campbell's last tournament win was in 1938 when she won the U.S. Senior Amateur. Campbell was inducted not only into the Canadian Golf Tournament, but the World Golf Hall Of Fame as well, both inductions coming in 1978. Campbell was killed in a car accident on March 20, 1945 at the age of 61.
Joyce Wethered was born on November 17, 1901 in Surrey, England. Wethered was a golfer who was known for being the greatest British woman player in history. She beat Glenna Vare three times, or every time they competed, which was a great accomplishment on its own. Wethered and her brother Roger leaned how to play golf as children. They tied for the British Open title in 1921 but eventually lost in the play off.
Wethered won the British Ladies Amateur Golf Championship four times between 1922 and 1929. She also won the English Ladies' Championship five consecutive times from 1920-1924. She died in London, England on November 18, 1997.
These women are an inspiration to any women golfers who decide to play the game.
