Golf's Hall of Heroes
DEPENDING on whom you talk to these days, Fred Couples (winner of one major championship and 15 PGA Tour titles) does or does not deserve to be going into the World Golf Hall of Fame on May 6. What’s indisputable is that you should go there yourself, if you haven’t already.
Golf’s pantheon has come a long way since its birth at Pinehurst in 1974 when the 13 charter inductees were Patty Berg, Walter Hagen, Ben Hogan, Bobby Jones, Byron Nelson, Jack Nicklaus, Francis Ouimet, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Gene Sarazen, Sam Snead, Harry Vardon, and Babe Zaharias.
