ESPN made a documentary about Jan Stephenson's fantastically bizarre golf career

Recommended Posts

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.

http://www.golfdigest.com/blogs/the-loop/2014/08/espn-made-a-documentary-about.html

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 the subject 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.

I definitely need to watch this vid later. Female Aussies are right up there with female Scots for sexy accents....IMO.
