Betty Baird Kregor ’79 to be inducted to Kentucky Golf Hall of Fame

Golf House Kentucky recently announced their 2022 Kentucky Golf Hall of Fame inductees. Congratulations to the KCD "Royal Bearcat" Betty Baird Kregor ’79, who is among the golfers being inducted this fall!  
Ms. Baird was considered Kentucky’s top female high school golfer in the late 1970s. As a Bearcat, she won three straight individual regional championships from 1977 to 1979 and led the KCD girls’ golf team to a regional championship for her senior 1979 season. Her talent brought an individual state championship in 1979 with state runner-up finishes in 1977 and 1978. Her scores of 37 for 9 holes, 71 for 18 holes, and 156 for 36 holes remain KCD school records. After being named winner of the 1978 KCD girls’ golf award, Ms. Baird earned an athletic scholarship playing for three years for the University of Alabama and University of Kentucky. Her notable golfing achievements include being named to the Kentucky High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame (her plaque is framed in the Bearcat Hall of Fame Hallway) and the Kentucky High School Metro Louisville Hall of Fame. Individually, she won the 1975 Junior World Golf Championship along with nine Junior PGA girls’ golf championships. She was named a three-time All-American by the National Junior Golf Association and a two-time Second Team All-American by the American Junior Golf Association.
