Her triumph in golf in the 1900 Olympic Games made Margaret Abbott the first woman competing for the United States to win an Olympic competition, a distinction she never knew. Abbott learned to play golf at Chicago Golf Club and became a leading player in the Midwest, winning the 1898 Deering Cup at Chicago Golf and placing highly in other tournaments. While studying art in Paris, she entered the golf competition, billed as part of the world’s fair, and led an American sweep of the podium.
