Suggs gave a huge amount to the female golfing world, winning 61 tour events, serving as LPGA president three times and no doubt inspiring many women to join the sport.
Players such Lydia Ko and Stacy Lewis expressed their gratitude for all Suggs had done for the sport, Ko said that:
“Not only what she’s done for the LPGA but for the women’s game is huge, we are so fortunate that we had those founders to make the LPGA what it is.”
Sandra Gal remembered the founder’s legendary spirit. “She was just uncompromisingly herself, it really seemed like she didn’t care what people thought about her and I thought that was a really good quality in someone who was a leader all her life and probably pushed their innovative ideas.”
Suggs will always be remembered as one of the greats who has carried the women’s game to what it is today.
