Dame Laura Jane Davies, DBE, is an English professional golfer who was born on October 5, 1963. Being the first non-American to place #1 on the LPGA money list and winning the Ladies European Tour (LET) Order of Merit a record seven times—in 1985, 1986, 1992, 1996, 1999, 2004 and 2006—she has earned the title of her country’s most accomplished female golfer of the modern era.

As of 2018, Davies had 87 career victories, including four majors, and 20 on the LPGA Tour. She was the first golfer, male or female, to win tournaments on five continents in a single season from 1985 to 2010, and she won at least one solo title somewhere in the world every season, with the exception of 2005. She is a life member of both the Ladies European Tour and the American LPGA Tour. 2015 saw her enshrined in the World Golf Hall of Fame.

In addition to golf, Laura enjoys fast cars, shopping, cooking for friends and family, and watching most sports on television, especially football. She is a huge supporter of Liverpool FC and England, attending matches whenever she can. Laura has never hidden the fact that she likes to gamble as well, especially on football.

In October 1963, during one of the coldest winters on record in the history of the UK, Laura Jane Davies was born in Coventry, England. A few years later, her family relocated to Surrey, an area of England close to London. After her parents relocated there in 1968 for her father’s employment as an engineer for the Lockeed Aircraft Corporation, Laura lived there for a period of about three years while attending school there.

Following her parents’ divorce, the family moved back to the UK in 1971, settling in Surrey, England, where Laura is still a resident today.

At the Corby Municipal Golf Club in Northamptonshire, England, Laura struck her first-ever golf ball while playing with her father and older brother, who was two years old at the time. Her first shot was airborne, much to his and his father’s surprise, as her brother recalls.

Later, she began playing more frequently by going with her brother and his friends, and she quickly discovered that she needed to hit the ball really hard in order to keep up with them and have any hope of competing—a quality that would come to be known as her trademark. The pair would play the 9-hole par-3 course at Sandown Golf Center in Surrey all day until 5 o’clock, when their mother would pick them up on her way home. This used to happen when Laura was a child and her brother was a student. Before the pair took the big move up onto the official 9 hole course at St Georges Hills in Surrey, they would compete fiercely and this would continue on for a number of years with weekend golf on the menu as well. By this point, Laura frequently defeated her older brother, who had a single figure handicap.

When Laura’s brother’s attention eventually shifted to football, she was already hooked on the sport and spent time at Guildford Golf Club in Surrey, England, and then West Byfleet Golf Club, also in Surrey. It was there that she met David Regan, the club professional at West Byfleet who had just recently retired in 2016 and whom she credits with having had the biggest impact on her career. Fundamentals that Dave established in Laura would help her throughout her career.

Only recently, when Laura was named a Dame by the Queen in the 2014 honors list, did she have one of her most proudest moments in her entire career.

The home of golf, St Andrews, hosted a ceremony in which she was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2015. At the moment, Laura is receiving accolades left and right, including the R & A’s recent announcement that she will become an honorary member of St Andrews.

She enjoys her work as an analyst and pundit on TV and has recently started doing more of it. She has covered the past few years’ worth of men’s British Opens for the BBC, the previous two Solheim Cups, and most recently the Ryder Cup for Sky Sports in Paris. As time goes on, Laura intends to work in more television and media.
