Jackie Pung won her first Hawaii championship at 14 and played on Roosevelt High School’s boys team. In 1938, she won the first of four Territorial Women’s Amateur Championships. She played 11 years with many of the LPGA founders. She lost one U.S. Women’s Open in an 18-hole playoff in 1953 and another after signing an incorrect scorecard.
