The Sporting Birthday - Louise Suggs
Golf : Louise Suggs was born on this day in 1923 (d. 2015)
Louise Suggs won 11 Majors in her career and ranks 4th of all time for wins on the LPGA tour.
Perhaps as important as her successful playing career was her off course impact. She was one of the co-founders of the LPGA in 1950, and was the president from 1955-57.
6 months before her death in August 2015 she became one of the first female members of the Royal & Ancient. A clearly amazing woman.
