A Conversation with Champions: LPGA Women and Their Heroes

Panelist Biographies:

Paula Creamer is the 2005 LPGA Rookie of the Year. Last year, not yet 19 years old, Paula won the Sybase Classic and became the youngest winner of a multi-round event in the history of women's golf. When she earned $1.5 million in her rookie year and was the first rookie and youngest player ever to qualify for the Solheim Cup, she broke two more records.

Heather Daly-Donofrio, a 1991 graduate of Yale University, is president of the LPGA's Players Council. She spent nine years on the LPGA tour, winning the 2001 First Union Betsy King Classic and, in 2004, the Mitchell Company Tournament of Champions. Asked about her inspiration, she's said, "What made me think that I could get into the LPGA Tour? I still can't tell you, but it was an idea that began for me when I was working in the bag room at a local club during those college summers. I was the only girl among a bunch of boys, and for whatever reason I fell in love with golf then."

Alice was a member of the LPGA Board for four years and was president of the Tournament Players Division. She holds the LPGA's record for the fastest round of golf, clocking 18 holes in an hour and 26 minutes.

Betsy Rawls, a member of the LPGA's Hall of Fame, started playing before the LPGA was founded. In 1949 she won the Texas Amateur - just four years after taking up golf. She has 55 career victories. Golf Magazine named her one of "100 Heroes" on the centennial of golf in America, and, on the LPGA's 50th anniversary in 2000, Betsy received the LPGA's Commissioner's Award. She was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in Pinehurst, NC in 1987.
