Furyk, Duval, Stricker, Harrington Added To Hall of Fame Ballot
Three new names were added to the PGA Tour side of the 2013 World Golf Hall of Fame ballot: Jim Furyk, David Duval and Steve Stricker. On the International side, Padraig Harrington is thenew name.
Furyk, I think deserves a spot with his 16 tour wins and a Major (the 2003 US Open). Steve Stricker is one of my favorite players, but that lack of a Major is a glaring hole.
Then there’s David Duval. Going strictly by the numbers (13 tour wins and a Major—plus a stint at World #1), I think he makes it. But there’s just something about his career collapse that doesn’t fit right.
On the international side, Padraig Harrington is the new name, and I think he’s likely the strongest of the new candidates. Harrington has 14 European tour wins, 5 PGA tour wins and most importantly, three Majors.
