Biography

Hale Baugh, Jr., attended the US Military Academy at West Point, graduating in 1946. Baugh later flew bombers in the Korean War, and earned both an engineering degree and a PhD in law at the University of Florida. He was admitted to the Florida bar in 1960 and practiced law in Cocoa, Florida for many years.

She was also known for her looks, was voted Golf Digest’s “Most Beautiful Golfer” in 1972, and spent many years modeling in addition to playing golf on the LPGA Tour. Another of Baugh’s children, Beau Baugh, also played professional golf for a time.
