Heather Farr was a champion in every sense.

A fourth generation Arizona native born in 1965, she excelled in golf at an early age. At 13 she won her first of nine Arizona State Women’s Amateur and Arizona Match Play Championships. At 14 she played in her first LPGA event. At 16 she was low amateur and finished 11th overall in the Women’s US Open. Graduating high school in three years, she never tied or lost a high school match or state championship.

Attending Arizona State University on scholarship, Heather Farr left college after three years to join the LPGA Tour at age 20, the youngest ever at that time. At 24 she was diagnosed with breast cancer and in 1993 at the age of 28 lost her battle with cancer.

Heather Farr never met a person she didn’t befriend. Her high energy, enthusiasm and passion for life inspired those who knew or knew of her. She will be remembered for her talent, her accomplishments, her sweet swing and her demeanor on and off the golf course.
