Former president Dwight D. Eisenhower has been selected for the World Golf Hall of Fame, the first U.S. president to be inducted.
Eisenhower, a member of Augusta National whose passion for golf
helped fuel its popularity after World War II, was chosen through
the Lifetime Achievement category Friday. He will be inducted
posthumously Nov. 2 at the World Golf Village.
Such was his influence on golf and Augusta National that the
home of the Masters named a cabin, pond and pine tree in his honor.
Arnold Palmer says it would be hard to find another person who
did more to boost golf's popularity.
