As a 16-year old Gail won the first of three consecutive junior titles in 1958. That was just the first of 21 provincial teams that would include Gail Harvey Moore; 12 of which would be representing her adoptive province of British Columbia, where Moore moved with her husband, in 1966. During her career, Moore would capture two National Ladies’ Close titles and the 1970 Canadian Ladies’ Open title, which she snatched from fellow hall of famer Marlene Stewart Streit. Her successful tournament play and team experience culminated with positions on seven National teams. The 1979 Commonwealth Team came home with the title, perhaps Gail Moore’s most outstanding achievement.
