Frisco, Texas, United States: The PGA of America has recognised six highly influential individuals at its biennial Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

Emceed by CBS Sports’ Amanda Renner, the evening at the Omni PGA Frisco Resort celebrated the 2023 PGA of America Hall of Fame Class: PGA Members Robert DolanDon Wegrzyn and Herb Wimberly; PGA Past President Suzy Whaley; LPGA legend Kathy Whitworth; and CBS Sports’ Jim Nantz

The PGA of America Hall of Fame originated in 1940 at the suggestion of famed sportswriter Grantland Rice to honour and recognise individuals who through their lives, careers, service and support have made significant and enduring contributions to the PGA of America in its mission to grow the game of golf.

It is the highest honour that the PGA of America can bestow upon its membership and ambassadors of the game.

“It’s a privilege to welcome this incredible group of PGA Members and Ambassadors into the PGA of America Hall of Fame,” said John Lindert, President of the PGA of America, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

Lindert, PGA Director of Golf at The Country Club of Lansing in Michigan, added: “One of the things you get to do as President of the Association is call the inductees and let them know they’ve been inducted into the PGA of America Hall of Fame. That’s a pretty special moment.

“This year we celebrate legends of the game, an iconic voice of our industry and highly accomplished PGA of America Golf Professionals who have made an impact on our profession and those who love this game.”

The 2023 PGA of America Hall of Fame Inductees fall under four induction categories: PGA of America Golf Professional Category (Dolan, Wegrzyn, Wimberly); PGA of America Past President Category (Whaley); Tour Player Professional Category (Whitworth); and PGA of America Ambassador Category (Nantz).

The Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony was held during the 107th PGA Annual Meeting.
