Beryl Buck Comes Back

The Longshore Womens Golf Association celebrates its 50th anniversary Tuesday (July 20) with a member-guest tournament.  Breakfast is at 7:15 a.m.; a shotgun start follows at 8, with lunch after play.

But that’s not the big news.

Beryl Buck will be there.

Buck — these days she’s called Beryl Buck Miller — divides her time between South Carolina and Maine.  She’s a retired LPGA master professional.

Back in the day, she formed the LWGA.  As an amateur golfer she won more than 20 state and regional titles  in Connecticut and Florida.

Her former husband, George Buck, was the Longshore pro for many years.

Golfers remember countless stories about the Bucks

Many will be retold on Tuesday.

Yet as long as the golf tournament itself lasts, odds are the tale-telling will go on far, far longer.

    I gotta tell you in the days of “Summer of ’42” movies (circa 1960’s), Beryl Buck was a “hotie” for us gawking teenagers. She gave a lesson once to the “Longshore Juniors” that left us breathless and swingless. She could play too. While George was much the teacher, Beryl competed regularly on the women’s professional tour. Nice to hear she is to be remembered and I will bet she still is playing.
