Par. Birdie. Bogey. Golf is played for the lowest number of strokes by an individual, known as stroke play — or the lowest score on the most individual holes. The object of golf is simply to get your ball from the tee (the starting point of any hole) to the green and ultimately into the hole,
When assessing the best female golfers of all-time, GFG factored in the era in which the LPGA Tour’s biggest legends played and who won major championships into their Hall of Fame careers.
Let's take a look at the All-Time list of female golfers.
Top 5 All-Time Female Golfers on LPGA Tour
The GOAT. World Golf Hall of Famer, Annika Sorenstam — has won 72 LPGA titles, 10 major championships, and POTY eight times. She is a player who dominates nearly every course she steps foot on. She is a player who can easily be recognized by only her first name. Annika won her last championship over 10 years ago, until this past year. Annika is now the 2021 U.S. Senior Women’s Open Champion as she went wire-to-wire in a runaway victory in the third overall edition of the championship, a performance for the ages.
The POWERHORSE. Some would shout to the rooftops that Mickey Wright is the GOAT. Wright finished her career with 82 LPGA wins and 13 major championships. Men’s golf legend Ben Hogan took notice of Wright and simply stated she had the best swing he’d ever witnessed in his life. Wright won her last tournament nearly 50 years ago — as she set the tone on every course with her powerful, athletic swing. Often compared to the Jack Nicklaus, her swing was influential and elegant.
The VET. Still active on the LPGA Tour, Karrie Webb is the only Super Grand Slam winner in LPGA history — after winning all five events that were considered majors during her playing days. Webb won 13 times on her native ALPG Tour and has accumulated 41 LPGA victories. In 1996, Webb was both ‘Rookie of the Year’ and 'Money Winner' at the premier ladies' Tour. To date, Webb has 57 professional wins in the U.S., Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
The GO GETTER. Inkster sets out to perform with remarkable consistency and works to compete at the highest level beyond any reasonable expectations. Juli Inkster is a two-time U.S. Women’s Open winner who has played in the USGA’s signature women’s championship 35 times during her Hall of Fame career — the last in 2014.
The SHOWMAN. World Golf Hall of Famer and a co-founder of the LPGA Tour, Louise Suggs ranks fourth on the all-time wins list with 61 and third in major championships with 11. Her 11 major titles included the 1949 United States Women’s Open. Suggs won every season of her professional career and in 1957 became the first player on the tour to capture the career Grand Slam, winning all the tour’s major events. The LPGA Tour Rookie of The Year award is named after Suggs. Without her influence, women’s golf wouldn’t be where it is today. Suggs, one of the 13 women who founded the LPGA in 1950 — died in 2015 at the age of 91.
