For the second consecutive year the World Golf Hall of Fame will have a display in the Exhibition Pavilion at the Open Championship, this year being played over Carnoustie Golf Links.
“We are excited to again be part of The Open Championship and are grateful to The R&A, our supporting organization, for offering an ideal opportunity to reach passionate golf fans attending the tournament,” said Jack Peter, sr. vice president and chief operating officer of the Hall of Fame. “We trust the spectators will enjoy the intriguing stories of the Hall of Fame members who have connections to Carnoustie.”
The exhibition will tell stories of Hall of Fame members who have won The Open Championship at Carnoustie – Tommy Armour, Henry Cotton, Ben Hogan, Gary Player and Tom Watson. It also will give spectators the opportunity to learn more about the Hall of Fame, its mission and its location in the United States.
World Golf Hall of Fame, located in St. Augustine, Florida, is the ultimate destination for the celebration and recognition of golf’s greatest players and contributors and an inspiration to golfers and fans throughout the world. A collaboration of 26 national and international golf organizations support the Hall of Fame, including the PGA TOUR, LPGA, USGA, PGA of America and The R&A. The museum houses interactive exhibits and historic and personal artefacts that tell the stories of its members and the game of golf. Adjacent is the World Golf Hall of Fame IMAX® Theatre.
