Rawls recorded 55 LPGA victories in her career, a number that included eight major championships. She was enshrinement into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1987 and given the USGA’s Bob Jones Award in 1996.

Her second Women’s Open triumph came in 1953 in a playoff over Jacqueline Pung at the Country Club of Rochester in New York. She won by six strokes to win the 1957 U.S. Women’s Open at Winged Foot and edged Joyce Ziske by a stroke to claim her final Women’s Open title in 1960 at Worcester Country Club in Massachusetts.
