LPGA Legend Mickey Wright is recovering from breast cancer surgery. Her manager said that the procedure was done on Friday. Wright is 71.
Winner of 82 tournaments, Wright is the only person on the LPGA to hold all four major titles at the same time. In that, she stands with Tiger Woods and Bobby Jones as one of three professionals to do so. In all, she won 12 majors.
Those accomplishments are even more astounding when you consider that she retired from tournament golf in 1969 at age 34.
Her’s wishing Ms. Wright a speedy recovery.
