Very sad to hear this.  My first putter was a Mickey Wright one, IIRC.  Not one she actually used, of course.

Didn't Ben Hogan say she had the best swing he ever saw? High praise, that.

Yes, and she resisted every attempt to commercialise her success. A truly great person.

She had a line of golf clubs, from Wilson I think. Mickey Wright irons, putters, etc.

Why "commercializing her success" would make her a bad person (implied), I don't know.

It is not implied, but I see why you say that. I was actually referring to how others tried to commercialise her to make money for themselves. She barely even gave interviews.

And now...the secret Mickey Wright did to hit the ball so purely....But seriously....what a beautiful swing she had.
