(Wenatchee, WA) -- Edean Ihlanfeldt, an acclaimed amateur golfer and the founder of the women's golf program at the University of Washington, is dead. She was 90. She played against Babe Didrickson Zaharias and Patty Berg before coming to U-Dub and founding the women's program in 1974. "I cannot begin to describe how larger than life Edean was," said Huskies women's golf coach Mary Lou Mulflur, who played for Ihlanfeldt before beginning her 37-year tenure at UW, in a statement from the school. She won six-straight state amateur titles in Montana, four Washington amateur titles and five Pacific Northwest Golf Association titles, among her many championships.
