Molly Gourlay

Here’s a photo from the July 19 1928 edition of the Toronto Daily Star of a champion women’s golfer:


There is no Wikipedia entry for Molly Gourlay, but I found a long article on her. She won the French Open in 1923 and 1929 as well as in 1928. She then spent many years playing and serving as an administrator for golf in her home county of Surrey, as well as working as a golf course architect. She was honoured with an OBE, and passed away in 1989.

The National Portrait Gallery has a photo of her from 1939.
