This one’s for Randy… Most players today don’t know the prowess of the leading women golfers in the world at the launch of the 20th century. One, Joyce Wethered, was astonishing in match play.
To say that Wethered was a dominant competitor grossly understates the case. She won 33 consecutive matches in the English Women’s Amateur tournament, owning the title exclusively from 1920 through 1924 – (age 19 to 23.) She also won 36 of 38 matches in taking the British Women’s Amateur championship four times in a span of seven years. She retired (for the first time) in 1925 prior to her 24th birthday.
I reviewed a biography about here her. The book is available online. A high recommend,
