Mallon played on eight consecutive U.S. Solheim Cup teams from 1992 to 2005 and was named captain of the U.S. team in 2013. The Natick, Mass., native was named one of the LPGA’s Top 50 players and teachers in 2000 and retired from the tour in 2010.

During her time at Ohio State, Mallon was a four-year letterwinner from 1982-1985 and a two-time first team All-Big Ten selection in 1984 and 1985. She won the 1983 Michigan Amateur Championship while at Ohio State and helped lead the Buckeyes to three Big Ten titles in 1983, 1984 and 1985.

Mallon was voted to the Ohio State University Athletics Hall of Fame in 1996.
