World Golf Hall of Fame inducts six

The World Golf Hall of Fame in Saint Augustine, FL has a new class of six inductees today. Among golf's elite is 82 year old, Pete Dye (lifetime achievement), who has been designing world class golf courses for 50 years. He has designed more than 200 golf courses on four continents. 120 U.S. PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup events have been held on Dye's courses.

This year's class also includes New Zealand's Bob Charles (veterans category), the first left-hander to win a major, the 1963 British Open; Denny Shute (veterans category), who won three majors in the 1930s; Carol Semple Thompson (lifetime achievement), one of only five people to win three different U.S. Golf Association individual championships; Craig Wood (PGA Tour ballot), a two- time major winner who became the first wire-to-wire winner of the Masters Tournament (pictured left) in 1941; and Herbert Warren Wind (lifetime achievement), who spent 43 years writing about golf for the New Yorker and Sports Illustrated magazines.
