Mickey Wright

One of the greatest - if not the greatest - female golfers ever

A native of San Diego, Wright was one of the greatest—if not the greatest—female golfers ever. Among her 82 tournament wins were four U.S. Women’s Open Championships and four LPGA Championships. Wright was also instrumental in the growth of the Ladies Professional Golf Association and is a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame. She retired after the 1969 season but came back in 1973 to win the Colgate Dinah Shore Championship. More importantly, she paved the way for the great women players who have followed her.
