30. Jan Stephenson
Her reputation as the Tour's sexy glamour girl often overshadowed how good Stephenson's golf was. She was a consistent threat at the top of the leaderboard through much of her career, winning 16 times with three majors.

29. Sandra Palmer
Palmer was at her best in the early to mid-1970s, winning the money title and Player of the Year award in 1975. Palmer went seven years without winning after first joining the Tour, then won at least once in each of the following seven seasons. She was in the Top 10 on the money list every year from 1968 through 1977 and finished with 19 wins on Tour.

28. Jane Blalock
She won early and she won often. She won in 1970 and she won in 1985. She won four times in a year four different years. She finished in the Top 10 on the money list 10 straight years and 11 total. What Blalock never did was win a major championship, nor a major award (Player of the Year, money title, scoring title). Her 27 wins are the most by any LPGA Tour player without a major.

27. Hollis Stacy
Stacy was never a dominant player - she finished in the Top 10 on the money list only five times in a career that stretched from 1976 to 2000 - but she was always a dangerous one. Especially when the stakes were high. Stacy won the U.S. Women's Open three times, and added a fourth major among her 18 total wins.

26. Donna Caponi
Caponi's career had a bit of an odd trajectory. But the end result was 24 wins and four majors. She won majors in 1969 and 1970, then cooled off, then 10 years later won more majors. Caponi won 10 times total in 1980-81, then never won again.
