LPGA veteran Dottie Pepper has continued with solid play in 2004 after mounting a comeback in 2003 in which she carded a season-low 66 during the opening round of the Welch's/Fry's Championship. Unfortunately, in 2002, Dottie missed the entire season except for one event due to a left shoulder injury that required surgery; she earned enough points to qualify for her seventh U.S. Solheim Cup Team but was unable to participate.
Dottie was ranked 7th on the 2001 money list and had eleven Top-10 finishes, including eight in the Top-5. Dottie has 17 LPGA Tour wins including two major championship victories.
Dottie Pepper joined the LPGA Tour in 1998. In 1992, her career really took off when she was the recipient of the Vare Trophy and was named Rolex Player of the Year along with winning four LPGA events. Since its inception in 1990, Dottie has qualified and competed on every U.S. Solheim Cup team. She enjoys nothing more than playing for her country. She currently has 21 points of the 27 needed to qualify for the Hall of Fame.
A fierce competitor on the course, Dottie strives for perfection and finds fulfillment off the course with her family. Dottie supports numerous charitable organizations including the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and serves on the board of the Heather Farr Foundation.
Dottie Pepper’s winning personality, natural talent and charm make her a great role model for women everywhere.
