Joyce Wethered was a golfer widely regarded as the greatest British woman player of all time. Joyce learned the game as a child, as did her brother Roger, who lost a playoff for the 1921 Open Championship. Joyce won the British Ladies Amateur four times (1922, 1924, 1925, and 1929) and the English Ladies' champion for five consecutive years (1920–24).
