LPGA Announces 2018 Pioneers, Pays Tribute to Their Trailblazing Spirit

Amy Alcott, Sandy LaBauve and Susie Maxwell Berning to be honored at Bank of Hope Founders Cup

Amy Alcott, Sandy LaBauve and Susie Maxwell Berning are being honored in March at the Bank of Hope Founders Cup as the LPGA’s ‘Pioneers’ of 2018, a tribute to their trailblazing spirit as well as their exemplary participation in the development and advancement of the LPGA Tour and women’s golf.

Each year, the Founders Cup returns to Phoenix to celebrate the LPGA’s past, present and future. The tournament at Wildfire Golf Club honors the 13 Founders of the LPGA, provides a stage for the best players of today from all over the world to showcase their talents and ‘plays it forward’ to the future of the game by raising money to benefit the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf program.

The event also celebrates the ‘pioneering’ women who continued the efforts of the LPGA Founders to maintain the momentum and growth of the tour. With Alcott, LaBauve and Maxwell Berning being honored as Pioneers this week, please see below for some of their amazing accomplishments and contributions to the LPGA.

AMY ALCOTT

LPGA and World Golf Halls of Fame member Amy Alcott turned professional in 1975 at the age of 18 and claimed her first major championship title at the 1979 Peter Jackson Classic (later renamed the du Maurier Classic). She went on to win four more majors – the 1980 U.S. Women’s Open and the Nabisco Dinah Shore (in 1983, 1988 and 1991). She celebrated her triumph at the 1988 Dinah Shore with a leap into Poppie’s Pond, establishing a tradition which is now followed by every winner of that championship.

Alcott’s most successful season came in 1980 when she won four times and clinched the Vare Trophy for the lowest scoring average. She ended her LPGA Tour career with 29 victories and started working in golf course design. She was part of the architectural team which designed the golf course for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

SANDY LABAUVE

A passionate LPGA Teaching Professional and mother of two daughters, Sandy LaBauve founded LPGA-USGA Girls Golf in Phoenix in 1989. She was first introduced to golf by her parents, Jack and Sherry Lumpkin, who taught her the game by infusing fun drills and games into her golf lessons as a child. LaBauve used these childhood experiences to create the LPGA*USGA Girls Golf program.

Beginning with just 10 programs, Girls Golf is now in more than 400 communities in the United States and expanding every day. Thanks to LaBauve’s vision, more than 500,000 girls have been introduced to golf since the program’s inception. LaBauve is a Class A member of the LPGA and the PGA, as well as an AWGA and EWGA member. She was inducted into the Arizona Golf Hall of Fame in 2010 and last year she was included in the LPGA Top 50 Best Teachers list presented by Women’s Golf Journal.

SUSIE MAXWELL BERNING

Susie Maxwell Berning turned professional in 1964 and joined the LPGA Tour that same year, a season that ended with her earning Rookie of the Year honors. She won her first LPGA Tour title at the 1965 Muskogee Civitan Open and her maiden major crown at the 1965 Women’s Western Open. In all, she triumphed 11 times on the LPGA Tour, with four of her victories coming at major championships. She was a three-time winner of the U.S. Women’s Open (1968, 1972 and 1973).

Maxwell Berning went on to become a well-respected teaching professional after joining the Nicklaus/Flick Golf School Division in January 1998. She was recognized during the LPGA’s 50th Anniversary in 2000 as one of the LPGA’s top-50 players and teachers.

  1. One who ventures into unknown or unclaimed territory
  2. One who opens up new areas of thought, research, or development
  3. Of, relating to or characteristic of early settlers: the pioneer spirit
  4. Leading the way; trailblazing

Louise Ball wins Jeri Reid Spirit Award

Midwest Section President and Class A T&CP Member Louise Ball has been awarded the LPGA Midwest Section Jeri Reid Spirit Award.

After joining the LPGA in 1997, she built her career in golf, starting as a teaching professional and owner of Tennessee Golf Academy at Gettysvue Polo Golf and Country Club in Knoxville, TN, where she is responsible for the day-to-day operations of instruction, programming, bookkeeping, lesson scheduling, and branding. And she served as EWGA (Executive Women’s Golf Association) Teaching Professional for Greater Knoxville Chapter, LPGA*USGA Girls Golf Academy Lead Instructor, and LPGA Leadership Academy Instructor.

“Jeri Reid was a fantastic member of our organization, and a great friend and confidant to so many.” Ball said upon learning she had been selected for the award. “In one word, she was inspirational!  She never missed a teachable moment.  She battled cancer 7 times in her life, and even towards the end of her life when referring to others going through challenges, she was quoted as saying ‘if they just gave a little more effort or a little more concentration towards what they want to do be doing, instead of what they don’t want to do, they would be better off.’ Jeri had a positive influence on everyone she touched, I’m so glad the MW section has named The Spirit Award in her name; it personifies Jeri perfectly.  I am truly grateful to be chosen in 2017 for this honor.”

Jeri Reid became a member of the LPGA T&CP in 1985. She was an active Tour Player whose playing career was cut short as a result of an injury sustained in a car accident.

She then picked herself up and started putting the pieces back together and began on a successful career path of teaching and inspiring golfers to play the game she loved so dearly.

But she never gave up, and, in Jeri’s words, “You have to pick yourself up and move on.”

Unfortunately, Jeri dealt with these numerous health issues until she lost her long, courageous and inspirational battle with cancer in April of 2016.

The Jeri Reid Spirit of Golf Award was established in 2014 and will be awarded annually to a Midwest Section member who inspires others by their actions just as Jeri Reid has touched countless lives throughout her career.
