Ian Woosnam inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame

Ian Woosnam has been inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame, it has been announced.

Woosnam is a highly-decorated player, having won the Masters in 1991, the European Order of Merit on two occasions, and captained Europe to Ryder Cup victory in 2006.

Woosnam, 58, is one of five players to be named in the forthcoming class.

This year's Ryder Cup-winning captain Davis Love III was also added to the prestigious list. Love won the 1997 PGA Championship and also has a top-four finish in three other majors throughout his career.

As well as Woosnam and Love, two female golfers, Lorena Ochoa and Meg Mallon, have also been given the honour. Ochoa retired in 2010, having won two major titles. The Mexican also topped golf's world rankings for 158 weeks.

Meg Mallon is a four-time major winner. She was also the first player on the LGPA Tour to shoot a 60 in a single round. The 53-year-old was also a multiple Solheim Cup winner and hugely deserving of the honour.

Broadcaster Henry Longhurst will also be posthumously inducted into the Hall. Longhurst died in 1978, but was the voice of golf on the BBC throughout the 1950s, 60s and 70s. His face – and voice – is legendary in the golfing world.

New York City will host the induction ceremony in September.
