little-known joyce wethered awed golfers of her day

John Fischer III has posted another of his wonderful essays into golf’s history on the Morning Read website with a story about Joyce Wethered, a contemporary of Bobby Jones who once remarked that her swing was as close to perfect as any he had seen – his own included. Miss Wethered, before she became Lady Heathcote-Amory, was rarely beaten, in match play or medal, but remained a modest person, content to enjoy the game as she found it, never seeking the spotlight.
