FORD FAMILY TREE

Although Frank C. Ford Sr. was the progenitor of four generations of accomplished golfers, his mother, Anne (Sissie) Gaillard Hanahan Ford, was the family's oldest champion, and his wife, Elizabeth (Betsy) Coker Ford, taught their sons the fundamentals of the game. Here's an accounting of the family's many championships.
