At the Men's British Open recently at Troon where I was awarded the the Golf Foundation's Spirit Of Golf Award, given to champions who truly inspire juniors into the game. Previous winners of the award among many others were Gary Player, Ernie Els and Tom Watson. It was a fun day and I got to meet some of the youngsters as you can see. The Golf Foundation do a great job.

My great friend Charlie Mechem introducing me at the World Golf Hall Of Fame ceremony, where he made a really nice speech, with some very kind words which I very much appreciate. I met Charlie and got to know him really well when he was running the LPGA tour in the mid 1990's and he got on well too with my late father Dave Davies. Charlie did a great job for that tour in his time as its commissioner.

Making my acceptance speech on the big screen after being inducted into the World Golf Hall Of Fame at St Andrews in 2015. I missed the ceremony due to a flight being canceled back from America, playing in the US Women's Open. Still, I made the after party where I met everyone who attended and Charlie presented me with my trophy, which he had accepted for me earlier.

A very proud moment in 2014, in the grounds at Buckingham Palace just after being made a Dame by the Queen.

My caddy said I could make the carry but I wasn't so sure. Hitting a shot to a downhill par 3 at Evian and they say the camera never lies!

468328919B - US Open Trophy 

Probably my finest hour to date as US Open champion in 1987, if you take away Solheim Cup team wins but I have to say too, that winning my fourth Phoenix Open in a row on the LPGA Tour between 1994 and 1997, has to be right up there in the memorable moments of my career. 

 

468549307B - Sol Punch 

Take that USA, I hole a putt at the 1992 Solheim Cup which we won in Dalmahoy Scotland.

An old friend of mine, he watched every shot.

That 1992 team, a great day for ladies European golf.

Left to right - Trish Johnson, Katrin Nilsmark, Mickey Walker (Captain), Me, Helen Alfredsson, Katrina Douglas, Liselotte Neumann, Florence Descampe, Pam Wright, Alison Nicholas, Dale Reid. At the time the Americans were considered pretty much unbeatable but we did it against all the odds.

Team we beat - Pat Bradley, Beth Daniel, Juli Inkster, Betsy King, Meg Mallon, Dotty Pepper/Mochrie, Patty Sheehan, Brandie Burton, Danielle Ammaccapane, Deb Richard, Kathy Whitworth (Captain).

You have to laugh, with good friend Trish Johnson, we were European pioneers on the LPGA Tour in the late 80's.

 

175050148 - St Andrews 

Teeing off at the home of golf on the famous 18th hole at St Andrews.  My favorite course from all the hundreds I have played and I was made an honorary member in 2015, something I'm very honoured and pleased about. When you play it you can just feel the history.

A lighter moment at a press conference alongside England's Mel Reid, not sure what she just said but it must have been pretty funny.

I'm not too keen on slow play, still I had plenty of water.

Long time ago, Curtis Cup days in 1984, check the oversized glove.

I love the Solheim Cup as you may have gathered.
