In 1950, thirteen women defied convention for the love of a game that most said had no place for them. Their decision to go pro was not met with fanfare, but derision; yet it proved to be a defining moment in women’s and sports history. With the creation of the Ladies Professional Golf Association, the founders staked their claim on the green and forged a path for future women athletes to be celebrated and taken seriously. Of the thirteen women who started the LPGA, only four remain to give personal accounts of the early days on the tour: Marilynn Smith, Shirley Spork, Louise Suggs and Marlene Bauer Vossler. Set against the timeless beauty of the golf course, these four pioneers reminisce about the journey, the struggle and the game itself. This is their legacy.
