Hollis Stacy's Bio

Born in Savannah, Ga., on March 16, 1954, Hollis Stacy set impressive records that still stand today. In 1969, at the early age of 15, she was the youngest player to win the U.S. Junior Girls Championship. She is also one of only two players to win that title three times. She won the 1970 North-South Amateur and was a member of the 1972 Curtis Cup Team. Ms. Stacy joined the LPGA Tour in 1974, and her 17 victories include three U.S. Women's Opens. Hollis Stacy holds consecutive titles from the 1977 and 1978 U.S. Women's Open, the 1981 and 1982 West Virginia Classic, and the 1982 and 1983 S&H Golf Classic. After recuperating from a serious car accident mid-season in 1988, Ms. Stacy returned to score four top five finishes and continued playing professional golf until assuming a golf coaching position at the University of Southern California.
