Padraig Harrington, Tom Weiskopf and Peter Dawson are among 12 people whose names have been put forward to be inducted into the The World Golf Hall of Fame in 2024.
Before gaining consideration, each finalist met the necessary qualifications in his or her respective category by way of on-course accomplishments or significant contributions to the game of golf.
The finalists also include Johnny Farrell, Jim Furyk, Dottie Pepper, Sandra Palmer, Beverly Hanson, Cristie Kerr, Butch Harmon, Jay Sigel and the seven remaining co-founders of the LPGA: Alice Bauer, Bettye Danoff, Helen Detweiler, Helen Hicks, Opal Hill, Shirley Spork and Sally Sessions.
The finalists were selected by a Nominating Committee comprised of select Hall of Fame members, media, World Golf Foundation Board organizations, and at-large selections. Additionally, all living Hall of Fame members were sent ballots and had the opportunity to vote for nominees.
“The Nominating Committee has selected finalists who represent the highest caliber of competitors and contributors,” said Greg McLaughlin, CEO of World Golf Hall of Fame. “Congratulations to all who have been nominated for this special recognition.”
These 12 finalists will be considered for admission into the World Golf Hall of Fame, Class of 2024 by a 20-member Selection Committee, comprised of Hall of Fame members, media representatives and leaders of the major golf organizations. They will be tasked with reviewing the merits and qualifications of each finalist and ultimately selecting the Class of 2024.
Final selections will be announced the week of March 6, 2023.
The 2024 World Golf Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held on June 10, 2024 at Pinehurst Resort & Country Club, coinciding with the 124th US Open Championship and the Hall of Fame Museum’s opening on the UGSA’s Golf House Pinehurst campus.
