Break out the champagne and noise-makers, the World Golf Hall of Fame inducted five new members this week, including Vijay Singh.
What, you aren’t frothing over with excitement?
Vijay Singh, the first golfer to win $10 million in a season, and a three-time major winner, is the biggest name, though old-timers will certainly remember Larry Nelson, who also won three majors and 29 tournaments.
It’s an indication of the worldwide lack of interest in golf’s hall of fame that Singh was actually nominated for induction last year, but postponed it for a year because, well…he had something else to do.
First, I didn’t know you could do that and second, what could possibly conflict with a Hall of Fame induction? An extended practice round?
There are many reasons why golf’s hall of fame is second-rate. First, they induct active players. Second, for example, another inductee is mark McCormack, founder of the International Management Group. Any time businessmen sneak in a hall of fame, you’re in trouble.
Other inductees were Henry Picard and Marilynn Smith.
Among those on the ballot not receiving enough votes were Colin Montgomerie, Jose Marie Olazabal, “Jumbo” Ozaki, John Daly, Fred Couples, Davis Love III, Lee Jantzen, Hubert Green, Curtis Strange, Dave Stockton and Fuzzy Zoeller.
