Betsy Rawls

The golfing world lost a legend.

Betsy Rawls, who is one of only two golfers to win at least four U.S. Women’s Opens, died Saturday. She was 95. Rawls recorded 55 LPGA victories in her career, a number that included eight major championships. She was enshrinement into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1987 and given the USGA’s Bob Jones Award in 1996.

She won her first U.S. Women’s Open in 1951, her rookie season on the LPGA, at Druid Hills Golf Club in Atlanta.

Her second Women’s Open triumph came in 1953 in a playoff over Jacqueline Pung at the Country Club of Rochester in New York. She won by six strokes to win the 1957 U.S. Women’s Open at Winged Foot and edged Joyce Ziske by a stroke to claim her final Women’s Open title in 1960 at Worcester Country Club in Massachusetts.
