Career

She won the U.S. Women's Open in 1967 as a 22-year-old amateur, playing in just her third professional golf tournament. She was only the second non-American to win an LPGA major after Fay Crocker of Uruguay (whose father was American), and she remained the only Frenchwoman to do so until Patricia Meunier-Lebouc won the 2003 Kraft Nabisco Championship. To date, she remains the only amateur to win the U.S. Women's Open.
