Jane Geddes is the United States Women's Open golf champion, the winner of last week's Women's Kemper tournament in Hawaii and the leading money winner on the LPGA Tour this year with $77,175 in four tournaments. It doesn't figure. Geddes, an athletic-appearing freckle-faced blonde, never swung a golf club until she was 17. In 1978, in her first year at the University of North Carolina Charlotte, her scoring average was 89 strokes. At age 26, she won the Women's Open.

Unless there is a nearby train derailment that spews forth poisonous gas and forces evacuations, a moderate earthquake and three days of rain, Jane Geddes will have less to contend with in defending her U.S. Women's Open title this week than she faced in winning last year.
