Remembering women veterans: Patty Berg — Golf star and Marine

Many people think women golfers are a recent phenomenon, but the story of Patty Berg goes back a half century. Patty Berg helped create the LPGA in 1948 and was the LPGA’s first president.   Berg won 15 major titles which is an all-time record for a woman golfer.   Berg also served in WWII as a Marine lieutenant.  This memorial day Oregon Women’s Report would like to remember this great American veteran and outstanding athlete Patty Berg.
