There are some things that make no sense, no matter how you slice and dice the information.
I was thinking about that statement the other day. A simple nonsensical fact.
Dame Laura Davies is not in the LPGA Hall of Fame.
What a disgrace.
Laura Davies is one of the finest women golfers ever, one who bedazzled LPGA fans for decades.
Since arriving on US soil in 1987, when she captured the Women's United States Open at Plainfield Country Club, she's been a fan favorite. Thirty one years later on the Bay Course at Seaview, Davies drew a large number of fans.
Over the years she has accumulated 20 LPGA victories including four major championship, all while supporting the Ladies European Tour where she's claimed 45 championships. With 85 career professional wins, her credentials are impecable.
This has been a fine year for Davies, who still competes a limited LPGA schedule. Included was a second place finish at the Bank of Hope Founders Cup.
She also claimed two Senior Major CHampionships, the Senior Women's Open and the Senior LPGA Championship. Not to shabby.
Okay, the LPGA uses a point system to earn a Hall of Fame berth, and Davies is shy of the 27 points required for entry. But the Senior Championships don't county, nor 65 of her 85 career victories.
The time is now to right this wrong. Laura Davies has outstanding credentials and should be in the LPGA Hall of Fame.
