Obituary for Mickey Wright
Mickey Wright did for the LPGA what Arnold Palmer did for the PGA — brought it into the homes of everyday Americans when golf was establishing itself as a major sport. Her smooth swing — described as many times as “perfect” — and her telegenic presence opened up an interest in the game for millions.
She won 82 events, including 13 majors. At one point, she held all 4 major titles at the same time.
RIP, Mickey Wright.
