I belive each nominee get a limited no of tickets...not a large space.
Maybe Tiger and Earl were not invited to Siffords induction.
No way would Tigers be open to public. Would be a mob scene.
Gary Player hasn't always been in the good graces of the South African government. Remember the golf course controversy in Burma a few years back? It got so bad to the point where the Nelson Mandela Children's fund withdrew sponsorship from one of Player's tournaments.
The Hall of Fame is very interesting.....went a couple year's ago when the featured exhibit was Bob Hope. Currently there is also an excellent exhibit for Nancy Lopez.
The pros are presented with the original tournament trophy the day of the win.....they keep it until the following year when they defent their win. At that time they are given a replica to keep. So trophies you see in the HOF are all replicas.....
Tiger has indicated he would rather wait until after he stops playing to be inducted.....so hope I'm still able to sit up and walk on my own!! But I'll get there by hook or by crook :-))))
I'M GONNA GO, EVEN IF THEY WOULDN'T LET US GO INSIDE.
JUST BECUSE HE IS A WINNER, AND HE HAS EARNED THE RESPECT.
