Tom Watson Passes On PGA Hall Of Fame Induction

Nice to see that Tom Watson has rejected the PGA of America’s hoped-for Hall of Fame induction over treatment of his old pal.

Jaime Diaz reports in Golf World that Watson had one simple reason for declining the honor: the treatment of former PGA president Ted Bishop, who was ejected from office with less than a month ago and stripped of past president status over a social media comment. Time has not been kind to the PGA’s decision, which did untold damage to the organization’s reputation with its membership and supporters.
