Here's why Peggy Kirk Bell held such a unique place in golf

Like her friend and neighbor, the broadcaster John Derr, who died last year at 97, Bell possessed a “Zelig” quality. She quickly became close friends with Babe Didrickson Zaharias, with whom she teamed to win the 1947 International Four-Ball Championship. Rather than being put off by the Babe’s bombast and physical gifts like many other competitors, Bell was drawn to the kind, softer person within. She named Zaharias the godmother of her first born, and joined the Babe for her last round of golf, nine holes at Tampa Country Club in early 1956, eight months before Zaharias succumbed to cancer. Of that round, Bell liked to tell the story of the Babe, her illness having robbed her of dozens of yards off the tee, drolly zinging her by saying, “Peggy, you sure are a great golfer. How can you break 80 hitting it so short?”
