Canada’s first player on the LPGA Tour, Sandra Post left a fine amateur career for the professional ranks and never missed a beat.
Following victories in three successive Canadian Junior Girl’s Championship, Post focused on turning professional for the 1968 season. Her victory in the LPGA Championship and a fifth place finish in the World Series of Golf garnered her rookie of the year honors and started a glorious career that included back to back wins at the 1978 & 1979 Dinah Shore and another six victories.
Until 2007, when Morgan Pressel won her first LPGA event and major title at the age of 18 years, 10 months and 9 days old, Sandra was the youngest winner of a modern major, winning the LPGA at the age of 20 years and 20 days old.
