Founded the Hawaii State Junior Golf Association

Mary Bea Porter-King’s illustrious career in golf began at Arizona State University, where she also played basketball, volleyball and softball. Golf, however, would remain her priority, as she picked up several collegiate wins and on Oct. 26, 1975, she won the Golf Inns of America Classic in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif. by 3 strokes. Upon retirement from the LPGA Tour in 1998, Porter-King founded the Hawaii State Junior Golf Association, where she continues to spend most of her time teaching juniors.
