U.S. Senior Open rules official Mary Bea Porter-King’s life in sports has featured several chapters in Omaha.
Porter-King, who played the LPGA Tour for a quarter century, won three Omaha women’s golf titles while her parents lived here in the late 1960s and early 1970s. She played for Arizona State in the Women’s College World Series at Dill Field in 1971 and 1972, winning a title with the Sun Devils the second year. And she reached the quarterfinals of the Trans-Mississippi Women’s Amateur at Omaha Country Club in 1972.
