Laura Davies CBE is widely regarded as the most accomplished and most successful female golfer in Britain. As the first non-American to finish at the top of the LPGA money list as well as winning the LET Order of Merit on seven occasions, Laura has proven her credentials as a world-class sportswoman. A fantastic golf speaker and sporting personality, Laura is an ideal character to act as an after dinner speaker and attend social and corporate golf days.
Laura became an amateur international player for Great Britain before turning professional in 1985, winning both Rookie of the Year and Order of Merit titles. In 1986 Laura repeated the achievement of the Order of Merit top spot, before winning the 1987 US Women’s Open in an 18 hole playoff. Such a rarity was the victory that the LPGA changed their constitution to grant Laura Davies automatic membership and she has played on both the Ladies European Tour and LPGA ever since. Laura Davies’ extraordinary achievements on the golf course make her a legend of the sport and a highly sought after sports speaker for events.
In 1994, Laura became the first and only golfer, male or female, to win five different golf tours in one calendar year. Her tours, including the US, Europe, Australia, Asia, and Japan prove a testament to Laura’s drive and determination to be the best and realise her ambitions. These two skills Laura explains in-depth as a sports speaker and are easily relatable to social and business environments alike.
Laura regularly appears on the BBC’s coverage of golf, including the Open Championship. Her consummate professionalism combined with charm and warmth make her an ideal on screen personality and presenter. In 2013, for her cooperation, quotability and accommodation with the media, Laura was the recipient of the ASAP Sports Award.
Laura enjoys her time in front of camera as much as joining in on match play and interacting with guests during golf days. A charming individual, Laura is an experienced after dinner speaker, often featuring some anecdotal tales of her extensive golfing career and exploring topics like mental resilience, that are as relevant to sports as they are to the board room.
