BACHELORS OF THE ART

July 12, 1959

Shown here is a fair (and we do mean fair) sampling of the 50 lovely and loose-jointed lady undergraduates who swarmed from 35 college campuses to a golf course in Chapel Hill, N.C. to compete in the Women's National Collegiate Golf Championship.

Though all of the girls had still to achieve their academic bachelorhoods, many of those present had already earned an impressive array of degrees in the art of golf. The tournament boasted at least five state champions, two former U.S. amateur winners, a clutch of regional champs and, topping them all, Miami's Judy Eller, who beat Purdue's Julie Hall 3 and 2 in the final 18 to become the new collegiate champ.
