This golfing prodigy from Fort Worth was destined to join the legendary ranks of women golfers from her native State -- Zaharias, Jameson, Rawls, Whitworth. In 1977 Sandra Haynie was the ninth golfer and fifth Texan admitted to the LPGA Hall of Fame. Her ascent to the top began as a teenager. At 16 she had already won the Texas State Amateur (twice), the Texas Publinks (twice) and the Trans-Mississippi. Three years later she won the Austin Civitan Open -- the first of 42 titles on the pro circuit. Her first "major" came at the age of 22 when she captured the 1965 LPGA Championship. Haynie pulled off a rare double in 1974, winning both the U.S. Open and LPGA Championship. Her fourth major title in 1982 came in what became known as the Du Maurier Classic. Haynie's career earnings exceeded $1 million despite missing most of four prime years on the tour due to injuries. Haynie was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1995.
