Mickey Wright, IMO the greatest female golfer of all time, died today of heart attack in Florida. She dominated women’s golf in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Coming out of San Diego, she was one of the game’s greatest champions, winning 82 tournaments including 13 majors in a career cut short by injuries.
Ben Hogan said she had the finest swing he ever saw. See it below.
She wrote an instruction book called Play Golf the Wright Way, a book I refer to often.
