Louise Suggs (1958)

Biography

American professional golfer, one of the founders of the LPGA Tour and thus modern ladies' golf.

After a successful amateur career, she turned professional in 1948 and went on to win 58 professional tournaments, with a total of 11 majors. Her prowess on the golf course is reflected in the fact that from 1950 to 1960 she was only once out of the top 3 in the season-ending money list.

Suggs was an inaugural inductee into the LPGA Tour Hall of Fame, established in 1967, and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1979. She is also a member of the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame.

She was one of the co-founders of the LPGA in 1950, which included her two great rivals of the time, Patty Berg and Babe Zaharias. Suggs served as the organisation's president from 1955 to 1957.

Suggs died on 7 August 2015, aged 91, in Sarasota, Florida.
