On June 10, the Class of 2019 was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. The Ceremony took place at the Sunset Center in Carmel-By-The-Sea in California, kicking off the week of the 119th U.S. Open Championship in nearby Pebble Beach. Retief Goosen, Billy Payne, Jan Stephenson, Dennis Walters and the late Peggy Kirk Bell were all bestowed with golf’s highest honor, which is being celebrated with this special Class of 2019 Inductee Exhibit at the Hall of Fame’s Museum in St. Augustine, Florida.
The exhibition tells the stories of each of their illustrious careers. From Major Championship trophies to expense booklets to a shredded outfit worn by Goosen when he was struck by lightning on a golf course, the artifacts displayed reflect the lives and careers of these five Inductees. The Inductee Exhibit is on display in Shell Hall, where their bronze reliefs are adorned on the 88-foot-long Wall of Fame.
Each Inductee is also given a space in the Member Locker Room, where their artifacts and personal memorabilia will live permanently in the World Golf Hall of Fame.
