Game 900 | August 2, 2018 | Nancy Lopez
Easily the best female golfer in the world from the late 1970s through the late 1980s, Lopez won nine events in her first year as a pro golfer, five of them in a row. She won 48 times in her career, three of them in major events. She told Dunkers that when she was just short of her ninth birthday her father entered her in a three-day tournament in Albuquerque. “I won my flight by 110 strokes and thought to myself, ‘hum,’ this could be fun,” she recalled.
