Question: Who Was the Last Amateur to Win on the PGA Tour, European Tour and LPGA Tour?
Amateur winners are very rare on the world's major professional golf tours. Who were the last amateurs to win on the PGA, European and LPGA tours? Here are the answers.
Answer: Most Recent Amateur Winners on PGA Tour

Amateur Winners on LPGA Tour

  • Lydia Ko, 2013 Canadian Women's Open
  • Lydia Ko, 2012 CN Canadian Women's Open
  • JoAnne Carner, 1969 Burdine's Invitational
  • Catherine Lacoste, 1967 U.S. Women's Open
  • Pat O'Sullivan, 1951 Titleholders Championship
  • Polly Riley, 1950 Tampa Open
Amateur Stacy Lewis won the 2007 LPGA NW Arkansas Championship, but the tournament was shortened to 18 holes by rain and dangerous course conditions and so is not counted as an official LPGA Tour victory.

(Note: These are the only amateurs to win on the LPGA)

Amateur Winners on the European Tour

  • Shane Lowry, 2009 Irish Open
  • Danny Lee, 2009 Johnnie Walker Classic
  • Pablo Martin, 2007 Estoril Portuguese Open
(Note: Martin was the first amateur to win on the Euro Tour)
