Dailey played a limited, four-event schedule in 1988. In July she was named director of women’s athletics and women’s golf coach at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. A 10-year veteran of the LPGA Tour, Dailey joined the professional ranks at the age of 30. Her career-low round of 67 was recorded at the 1981 Boston Five Classic. The following year she posted her career-best finish, a solo third at the Express Sun City Classic and went on to have her most successful season on Tour. In 1984 she found herself at the top of the leader board after two round of the du Maurier Classic and the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic. Both resulted in 10-place finishes and led the way to Dailey’s second-best year on Tour with nearly $40,000 in earnings.
Winner of the 1966 Kentucky High School Championship, Dailey traveled east and captured the North Carolina Amateur in 1977 and 1978, in addition to the 1978 Carolinas Amateur. She was runner-up in the North-South Amateur in 1977.
