A U.S. Women’s Open championship was not on Breer’s mind the day she entered a pro-am in Savannah. At the time, she was a 15-year-old who had been playing golf less than a year. Breer was working at a par-three course on this fateful day and entered a pro-am as an amateur. Nevertheless, she was announced as “Murle Breer - professional.” According to legend she has been a professional ever since. Within eight years, Breer had gone from coincidental professional to the 1962 U.S. Women’s Open champion. She defeated JoAnn Prentice and Ruth Jessen by one shot at Dunes GC in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, to gain her first victory. She won three more tournaments after he Open win and also captured the 1979 JCPenney Classic teaming with Dave Eichelberger. They defeated Silvia Bertolaccini and Jim Colbert by one shot. Breer recorded a T5 finish at the 1980 Sarah Coventry but has not cracked the top 10 since. She only played in 12 1983 tournament (best finish: T56, Orlando Classic). She bettered that during her eight 1984 tournaments. In her first event, the S&H Golf Classic, Breer posted a 25th place tie and although she lowered her scoring average from her 1983 average she could not record a higher finish.
