Hubert Green Selected To Golf Hall of Fame

imageAlong with Curtis Strange, Hubert Green was recently elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Unfortunately, Green often is remembered for the death threats he received prior to the 1977 US Open at Southern Hills. Dave Kindred tells the story far better than I could. His article from a couple of years ago in Golf Digest is worth re-reading.

I’m sure that Greem would rather be known for being among the top 33 all-time PGA Tour Winners with 19 victories during his 26 years on the PGA Tour. He won two major championships: the 1977 U.S. Open which was held at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma and the 1985 PGA Championship which was held at the Cherry Hills Country Club in Cherry Hills Village, Colorado. He played on three Ryder Cup teams: 1977, 1979, and 1985.

He also has four victories on the Champions Tour.
