Betsy King made history on the golf course. She played collegiately at Furman University in Pennsylvania, where she was on the 1976 national championship team. Betsy joined the LPGA Tour in 1977, and won six major championships and claimed 34 LPGA Tour victories in her career. She is a three-time LPGA Tour Player of the Year (1984, 1989, 1993). In 1995, Betsy was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
She made history on the golf course; but she made a difference when, following a 2006 trip with World Vision to Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia, she founded Golf Fore Africa. Betsy took this trip with a prayer in her heart to hear God’s call in her life on what she could do to help the poor of Africa. To date, Golf Fore Africa has been able to give $10.5 million dollars to fund schools, health clinics, and most recently, clean water projects in five different African countries.
