Product Overview

"Jackie Pung: Women''s Golf Legend" tells the story of an inspiring woman revered as one of Hawaii''s greatest golfers. Pung was a teenage golf protege who became one of the top women competitors on the LPGA tour for twelve consecutive years--but the journey wasn''t easy. Her self-described "life of inner turmoil" is punctuated with heartbreaking moments, such as her seemingly victorious final stroke at the 1957 U.S. Women''s Open. Only minutes later, she was disqualified on a technicality.

While author Betty Dunn carefully follows the ups and downs in Pung''s golf career, the accompanying life lessons make this a relevant read for the non-golfer as well. Through financial and family hardships, racial discrimination, mental collapse, and one-hundred-pound weight swings, Pung struggles to find her place in the world. And she does, making friends, such as Bob Hope, along the way.

In her eighty-plus years, Jackie Pung has gained fame, but not fortune. Nonetheless, she believes she has angels on her shoulders. They serve as her guides while she continues to pursue her mission in life: to share her gifts with others. Through this story, she is able to do just that.
