The Golf Swing of
Kathy Whitworth

Born on September 27, 1939, in Monahans, Texas, Kathrynne Ann Whitworth grew up in Jal, New Mexico, where she began playing golf at the age of 15. After graduating from high school in 1957 she attended Odessa Junior College in Texas for a semester. Whitworth turned professional in 1958 and four years later recorded her first victory in a Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) tournament. An excellent putter, she was also known for her strong drives, and she dominated the tour from 1963 to 1973.
In 1963 she won eight tournaments. She was the LPGA's leading money winner from 1965 to 1968 and from 1970 to 1973. She was named the LPGA player of the year seven times (1966-1969, 1971-1973) and the Associated Press woman athlete of the year in 1965 and 1966. In 1969 Whitworth passed Mickey Wright to become the LPGA's leading all-time money winner; in 1981 she became the first woman golfer to pass the million-dollar mark for lifetime earnings. A seven-time recipient of the Vare Trophy for best average in the LPGA tour (1965-67, 1969-72), she won every major tournament on the tour except the U.S. Open. Her total of 88 career wins is a record for both men and women on the U.S. tours.


Whitworth was president of the LPGA in 1967, 1968, and 1971; in that position she worked to increase the commercial appeal of the ladies tour and consequently the size of purses offered. She was inducted into the LPGA Hall of Fame in 1975 and the International Women's Sports Hall of Fame in 1984.
