The LPGA Tour has been around since the early 1950s, and many great golfers have come and gone over that time. Which ones won the most tournaments in their careers? The Top 5 are:

  • Kathy Whitworth, 88 wins
  • Mickey Wright, 82 wins
  • Annika Sorenstam, 72 wins
  • Louise Suggs, 61 wins
  • Patty Berg, 60 wins

The thing that stands out about that Top 5 is that four of those listed began their LPGA Tour careers in the 1950s; in fact, Berg and Suggs were original members (and the tour counts some of their wins even prior to the LPGA's founding as official wins).

While Whitworth's final wins came in the 1980s, the others' happened much earlier.

Moral of the story: The depth of the LPGA is much, much deeper today than it was in previous decades, and especially compared to the tour's first two decades. And that makes Sorenstam's 72 wins even more impressive.
