Joyce Wethered The Great Lady of Golf

by Basil Ashton Tinkler

Joyce Wethered The Great Lady of Golf Synopsis

Joyce Wethered (Lady Heathcoat Amory) was the finest lady golfer of her, and any other, generation. Playing in the golden era of golf (between the wars), Bobby Jones said that she was 'the best golfer in the world'. British Lady Champion four times, English title holder on five occasions and winner of the Worplesdon Mixed Foursomes seven times in thirteen years with six different partners, she was a great stylist on the golf course. Having toured the United States and Canada many times, after retiring from golf she became an expert gardener until her death in 1997; today, thousands flock to her former home Knightshayes (now a National Trust property).
