Always See What BELK-HUDSON Has First
Strictly An Amateur
Is Champ Peggy Kirk
By GENE PLOH'OEN
mi. a ah, r la. A tall Ohio miss
who never intends to turn prof
sional is stroking her way to the
lop among I he nation's women golf
She is Peggy Kirk of Findlay, an
attractive young woman with
brown hair and laughing eyes.
Miss Kirk has been playing
golf as Ions as she can remem
ber, but took up tournament
play only six years ago, after
watching I'atty Berg give a
demonstration in Columbus.
"Right then 1 decided to take
up tournament golf," she says,
"but I never intend to turn pro
fessional. I'm having too much
if tfjW. V V.'
fun as an amateur."
Two years ago her friend, Babe
Didrikson Zaharias, said Peggy
would be "tops in a few years." I
She won the Ohio Stale cham
pionship in 1!M7 and repeated last i
year to prove the Babe was right. ;
Miss Kirk is the only member'
of her family to take up the game.
Her father, a wholesale grocer in
Findlay, Marion and Columbus,
reads about the tournaments but
doesn't follow them. He never
was particularly interested in any j
sport except baseball. She has a j
twin brother and a sister two years .
older than she, but they never i
went in for golf.
Peggy, five feet, 71!' inches j
tall, weighs 150 pounds. She
doesn't go in for any other sport,
though she likes baseball and
especially the Cleveland Indians.
Last year she played in 21 or
22 tournaments she doesn't
know the exact number and
plans to make at least that marly
in 1949. She travels in her own
automobile and doesn't have to
worry about expenses. Her father
furnishes the money.
"All I have to worry about is
improving my game," she says,
"but that's enough."
She gives a lot of credit to

Recently Miss Kirk won med
alists honors in the 17th annual
Helen Lee Doherty tournament
with a sparkling 73, three under
women's par for the Miami Coun
try Club course. She went to the
semi-finals before losing to Mar
jorie Lindsay of Decatur, III.
The next day she was on the
course again, practicing for the
next tournament The Palm
Beach women's golf tournament.
She beat Polly Riley in the
finals for the second straight
Peggy is full of energy and en
thusiasm. She does not smoke or
drink, doesn't keep late hours and
gets plenty of sleep. She has few
interests outside her golt game.

playing in tournaments?" She re
