For the younger forum members:
This lady was the bombshell of the LPGA when I was in college. Guys in my dorm had posters of her.
In 1973, a 23-year-old Jan Stephenson waltzed onto the LPGA Tour and began one of the most polarizing careers the game has ever known.
The Australian-born Stephenson with her long, curly blond hair soon became -- at the encouragement of the LPGA Tour, she says -- golf's first sex symbol. She was thesubject in a series of risque images throughout her career, which divided opinion sharply among her peers. She kept winning, though, even after a marriage-gone-wrong led to a brief stint in an insane asylum. Stephenson remained the star of golf's biggest soap opera, and people couldn't get enough.
