Susie Maxwell Berning, longtime LPGA star and local teaching professional, inducted into World Golf Hall of Fame

Berning joins Tiger Woods, Marion Hollins and Tim Finchem in 2021 Induction Class

Sports Director Blake Arthur had the opportunity to sit down with newly inducted World Golf Hall of Fame member, Susie Maxwell Berning at the Reserve Club in Indian Wells.

Berning had a successful playing career after not taking up the game until she was a teenager. In fact, she didn't have an interest in golf until she moved to Oklahoma from California.

After competing on the boys team in high school, she went on to have a great success on the LPGA Tour where she earned 11 career wins. Most notably, she won four major championships, three of which were the US Women's Open. In addition, she was the 1964 Rookie of the Year.

She's been retired since 1996 but has been a highly regarded teaching professional since. Berning does most of her teaching at the Reserve where she is an honorary member.
