Willie Park Jr. selected for Golf Hall of Fame



The late Willie Park Jr. will be joining his father in the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Park won the British Open twice in the 19th century and had a large influence on the game by making golf clubs and building golf courses. He was selected through the veteran's category. His father, Willie Park, the first Open champion, was inducted in 2005.

Park joins Ken Venturi and Fred Couples in the 2013 induction class. The ceremony will be on May 6 at the World Golf Village.

Park won the Open in 1887 and 1889.

Among the golf courses he designed were the Old Course at Sunningdale, Maidstone Golf Club on Long Island and Olympia Fields outside Chicago. He died in 1925 at age 61.
