1955

Miss Fay Crocker, of Montevideo, Uruguay, who came to this country and turned professional in 1953 after winning the Uruguayan Women's Amateur 20 times, won by four strokes with 74-72-79-74299, at the Wichita Country Club, Wichita, Kans.

Her control, especially of her long irons, was decisive since play was carried on in winds that ranged up to 40 miles per hour. Miss Crocker led after every round. Mrs. George Zaharias was unable to defend because of a spinal operation just before the event.
