Kathrynne Ann Whitworth (born September 27, 1939) is an American golfer. During her playing career she won 88 LPGA Tour tournaments, more than any other on the LPGA Tour.
Bobby Jones (real name Robert Tyre Jones Jr.; born March 17, 1902 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA; † December 18, 1971) is considered one of the greatest golfers of all time. Despite his outstanding track record, he remained an amateur throughout his life and did not turn professional.
Tiger Woods is world famous, and even many non-golfers know his name. The situation is different with Jack Nicklaus. But even without his name meaning anything to anyone, Nicklaus must also be accorded the status of a true golf legend.
Nicklaus was born on January 21, 1940 in the US city of Columbus, Ohio. In keeping with his age, which is now 82, his great days as a professional golfer are already decades behind him. But the "Golden Bear," as he is nicknamed, still leaves his mark today.
