Known before her marriage as "The Great Gundy," Carner is a former professional golfer with an impressive forty-three LPGA Tour wins between 1969 and 1985, as well as numerous other tournament victories, awards, and honors garnered during her long career. Carner's Rhode Island bona fides date from six years that she and her husband, Don, spent in the state, during which time they owned and operated the Firefly Golf Course in Seekonk, Massachusetts.

Carner was inducted into the Rhode Island Heritage Hall of Fame in 1969, and into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1982.
