A groundbreaking force and a pioneer of the game, Marion Hollins was a visionary and one of the only female golf course developers in history. Her experience as a player- winner of the 1921 U.S. Women’s Amateur and captain of the first American Curtis Cup team in 1932- led to a change in the landscape of the game (quite literally.) Credited with being the first woman to conceive and build a planned unit development with a golf course as a central feature, she played a major role in the founding and formation of two of golf’s most iconic courses, Cypress Point and Pasatiempo.
A winner of 93 worldwide events including a record-tying 82 on the PGA TOUR, Woods is a 15-time Major Champion and a three-time winner of the career Grand Slam. Woods completed the “Tiger Slam” in 2000-01 when he became the first golfer since Bobby Jones to hold all four Major Championship titles at the same time. He is tied for first in PGA Tour wins, ranks second in men's major championships, and holds numerous golf records. A legend among legends, Woods is widely regarded as one of the greatest athletes in history.
The work Tim Finchem has done throughout his 22 years as PGA Tour Commissioner (1994-2016), and beyond, has truly had a global impact bringing emphasis to the “World Golf” portion of his Hall of Fame induction. Spearheading the efforts for golf’s return to the Olympics, his tireless effort paid off in the 2016 Games after a 112-year absence. Finchem was also instrumental in founding First Tee, a youth development organization that has empowered more than 15 million kids and teens through the game of golf on courses, in schools and in after-school programs.
