Our story began in 1950, when 13 brave and bold women launched the LPGA with a dream of providing a platform for women to play professional golf. Just nine years later, that same bold spirit and focus on women’s opportunities led to the start of the LPGA Teaching and Club Professionals. Since then, so many people have been instrumental in keeping the LPGA soaring to new heights. And while each decade tells its own story, with a cast of characters specific to those moments in time, there is no doubt that the LPGA would not be where it is today without each one of YOU!

While we cannot possibly capture every person in this book, I want you to know that ALL of you have played a unique and important role in the success and sustainability of this great organization. You have all kept the pages turning in this extraordinary LPGA story.

As you take a walk through the decades in this book, I hope you share my pride for what we have all built together!

We’ve come a long way, and despite our current size and strength, we continue to be driven by one single phrase, one single philosophy, that guides everything we do – Act Like a Founder.

I can’t wait to see what the next 70 years will bring and who will be next to step onto the stage – Right on Cue.

Mike Whan

LPGA Commissioner
