Catherine Panton-Lewis

Catherine Rita Panton-Lewis (born 14 June 1955) is a Scottish golfer from Bridge of Allan, who was a founding member of the Ladies European Tour and won its first Order of Merit. Her father is John Panton, MBE, a professional golfer who played on three Ryder Cup teams.

As an amateur, Panton won the British Ladies Amateur Championship in 1976, winning 1-up over Alison Sheard. Later that year, she was a member of the Great Britain & Ireland Espirito Santo Trophy team. She was captain of the University of Edinburgh golf team in 1976 and 1977, and was Scottish Universities Champion in 1977.

Panton-Lewis turned professional in 1978, the same year that the Women's Professional Golf Association was founded as a division of the PGA of Great Britain and Ireland. In 1979 she participated in the first season of the Women's Professional Golf Association's tour (later the Ladies European Tour) and topped the tour's first Order of Merit. She went on to win fourteen tournaments on the tour, and also played on the LPGA Tour in the mid 1980s. She played her last full season on the LET in 1995, and has played in some events on the Legends Tour, including the inaugural Handa Cup in 2006.
