    Please post the names of those you consider worthy Hall of Famers. I'll bold the ones that get a vote. Edited this post to save space.

    Macdonald Smith shouldn't be in.

    Sergio, Westwood, Stenson, Goosen, Bubba all get in.

    Basically 2 majors and 15+ PGA victories and you get in, based on who is currently in. 30+ victories and two majors works too basically.

    I bolded your picks. Deleted MS. No love for British Open Champ, 5 time Major runner up, and a 3rd at the PGA, Tom Weiskopf? Edited this post to save space.

    Nope, super fringe.

    List of golfers with most PGA Tour wins - Wikipedia

    Honestly just have to look at that list and see who has an H beside their name. Weiskopf has people above him with similar or better credentials that aren't in. Did he do something substantial for the game that isn't displayed in the individuals on course achievements?

    Then don't let them in.

    Cristie Kerr has 20 LPGA wins, 2 majors, and over $19 million in career earnings. She's been ranked #1 in the world 3 separate times. She's a lock.

    Watson: Too early to say. Precedent says he wins another four tour events, and he's in.

    Westwood: I don't think he has a hall of fame resume, but they let Monty in, and you can make the case he has a pretty similar resume. There are differences. Monty had more European Tour wins and won the Order of Merit more often, but Westwood had a slightly better record in majors and got to World #1. I think he probably should get in, given past precedent.

    Garcia: In

    Stenson: Too early to say again. I think he has a chance. Two more wins, and I'd say his resume is comparable to Couples who was let in.

    Goosen: Precedent says he should be in, but not by much.

    Kerr: Don't know enough about the qualification process in the Women's game to get into the Hall of Fame. From a brief look at it, I think she'd probably get in.

    Kaymer has to be in, no?

    Also, what about @Pavel Buchnevich 's favourite player :thumbu:, Brooks Koepka, if he retired tomorrow? Yes or no?

    I don't think Kaymer is in, and the way he's been going in recent years, I don't think he'll get in. I don't even think he's that close right now.

    Koepka is in, in my opinion. With two majors, I think the rest of your resume matters. three, you're in.
