With Women’s History Month upon us, the LPGA’s 70th anniversary, and the LPGA Founders Cup quickly approaching, we’re taking a look at how women and girls have been paying homage to the thirteen founders who paved the way to create the LPGA Tour, the first professional women’s sports organization in the world.
From the unique to the sweet, their efforts may have you rummaging through your closet or local thrift store racks to find to create a Founder inspired look of your own.
Grab a long skirt and blouse but don’t forget the accessories…
Take a page out of Caroline Demarco’s playbook, whose outfit won her 2nd Runner Up at Highlands Country Club’s Ladies Member-Guest.
Complete with vintage golf clubs in hand, Caroline and her companions dressed as Betsy Rawls, Babe Zaharias, Marilynn Smith and Peggy Kirk Bell for the outing’s “Fabulous Foursome” theme.
They donned faux LPGA player credentials which featured short biographies of each legendary lady and presented a hand drawn copy of the very first iteration of the LPGA logo.
Smile for the camera
After watching The Founders film, teen leaders from LPGA*USGA Girls Golf of Miami were inspired to take a step inside the wardrobes of the women who paved the way for them.
With Girls Golf eLeader Darlene Infantas at the helm, the group recreated famous black and white photos of the Founders. They went thrift shopping with their parents to pull together identical looks and spent a full day conducting a full-fledged photoshoot.
