MASSACHUSETTS GOLF HALL OF FAME 2016 INDUCTEES ANNOUNCED

Bob Crowley, Bill Flynn, Joe Lazaro, Anne Marie Tobin, Frank Vana, Jr. and Herbert Warren Wind will receive the Bay State’s highest honor.

For only the third time in history, a new class will be inducted into the Massachusetts Golf Hall of Fame. The Massachusetts Golf Hall of Fame was launched 12 years ago in concert with the grand opening of the William F. Connell Golf House and Museum located on the grounds of TPC Boston in Norton.

The inaugural class – Pat Bradley, Fred Corcoran, Francis Ouimet and Donald Ross – are memorialized as part of a metal “Hall of Fame” ring that hangs from the Museum ceiling. The second class was inducted in 2014 and includes Ted Bishop, The Curtis Sisters (Margaret & Harriot), Joanne Goodwin, Paul Harney, Bob Toski and Fred Wright

The third class, representing amateur and professionals whose careers have spanned more than 100 years, features Bob Crowley, Bill Flynn, Joe Lazaro, Anne Marie Tobin, Frank Vana, Jr. and Herbert Warren Wind.

“We are honored and excited to induct a third class of inductees,” said Tom Bagley, chairman of the Massachusetts Golf Hall of Fame Committee. “The committee has continued to be impressed by the depth and quality of individuals who have made indelible marks on the sport here in the Bay State. The class of 2016 is no different. Their impact on the game has been felt both on and off the golf course and their individual legacies are second to none.”
