Golfers always look to lower their score in competition, but very few can lay claim to scoring under their age.
Octogenarian golfer JoAnne Carner pulled off an impressive feat by scoring under her age. Carner, 84, scored an 80 today at the US Senior Women’s Open. Carner’s incredible score is an accomplishment for any golfer, let alone an 84-year-old. Even more amazingly, this is the 6th time the women’s great has done this.
No stranger to professional golf, Carner is one of the greatest golfers in history. In a career spanning over 30 years, winning 49 professional wins, including 43 times in her storied LPGA Tour career, and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1982 while still an active competitor.
Carner is a record setter as a golfer, including becoming the oldest player to qualify for a tour in 2004 at the age of 65. Though her score is remarkable for her age, or any age, Carner isn’t satisfied as she looks to score lower.
Carner is among the most decorated golfers of any era. She won the Rookie of the Year in the LPGA Tour in 1970, and went on to win numerous awards and honors including becoming a 3 time LPGA Tour player of the year.
In 2024, the Senior Women’s Tournament will see Carner returning, knowing she wants to aim higher by scoring lower.
