Laura Jane Davies, CBE, was born on this day in 1963. She is a professional golfer who joined the money ranks in 1985.
Her long and distinguished career includes four women’s Major championships, a record seven Ladies European Tour Order of Merit titles, and numerous victories on tours around the world.
She was the first non-American to win the LPGA Tour money list in 1994. A long hitter and a gambler by nature, her aggressive approach to the game is exciting and popular with galleries everywhere.
With the exception of 2005, Davies won at least one tournament every year since turning professional (in 1985) through to 2010.
