St Augustine, Florida, United States: The World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum will stage its 2017 Induction Ceremony in New York City in conjunction with next year’s Presidents Cup.
Tim Finchem, PGA Tour Commissioner and Chairman of the World Golf Foundation Board of Directors, said: “The addition of the World Golf Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony enhances what will already be an exciting Presidents Cup week.”
Jack Peter, President of the World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum, said: “The opportunity to align the biennial Induction Ceremony with the Presidents Cup in one of the most vibrant cities in the world is thoroughly in line with our objective to raise the profile of the institution.
“The Presidents Cup captures a robust international audience, and we look forward to kicking off the week’s celebrations with the enshrinement of another deserving Induction Class.”
To be held on September 26, 2017, a New York City venue as well as the Induction Class of 2017 will be announced later this fall.
Last summer the Induction Ceremony was staged the week of the 144th Open Championship in St Andrews, Scotland, where Dame Laura Davies, David Graham, Mark O’Meara and the late AW Tillinghast were enshrined.
