2005 Caddie Hall of FameDOWNLOAD PDF
Mr Joy said, “This is a wonderful honour. Both Willie Park and Old Tom, who made a great contribution to golf, had starting roles as caddies.”
ST ANDREWS golfing legend Old Tom Morris, Scottish-born Willie Park sen, winner of the first Open Championship in 1860, and American hero Gene Sarazen, one of the greatest players of his era, have been inducted into the Professional Caddie Association’s Hall of Fame at a reception in St Andrews.
The trio all began their illustrious golfing careers as caddies and posthumously received the honour during a ceremony at the Scores Hotel, less than a wedge shot from the 18th green of the Old Course.
The awards for Willie Park sen and Old Tom Morris were presented to St Andrews-based historian, playwright, author and artist David Joy, who has portrayed Old Tom on stage and on film. Gene Sarazen’s daughter Mary Ann collected her father’s certificate.
