LPGA Hall of Famer Carol Mann dies at 77; won 38 titles, two majors
Carol Mann, a two-time major champion who won 38 LPGA Tour titles, has died. She was 77.
The LPGA Tour issued a statement Monday that Mann had died Sunday at her home in The Woodlands, Texas. LPGA Tour officials said a family member notified them of Mann's death.
Her major titles were the 1964 Women's Western Open Invitational and the 1965 U.S. Women's Open. She won 10 tournaments in 1968.
Mann also served as LPGA president from 1973-76. She was an analyst for men's and women's golf on ABC, ESPN and NBC.
Mann was inducted into the LPGA Tour Hall of Fame and the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1977.
LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan says Mann has been "part of the fabric of the LPGA for more than 55 years, with a Hall of Fame career both on and off the golf course."
Mann grew up in Baltimore and Chicago. She took up golf at 9, attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and joined the LPGA Tour in 1961.
