World Golf Hall of Fame Has New Exhibit about Major Championships

SAINT AUGUSTINE, Florida — The World Golf Hall of Fame has a new interactive exhibit that tells the story of the four men’s major championships — the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship.

“Major Moments: Celebrating Golf’s Greatest Championships” includes new artifacts and interactive features, including a leaderboard that allows guests to put their name on top of a leaderboard, take a photo and share with others.

Also new is a digital touchscreen kiosk that provides details about the four major championship trophies, such as their history, height, weight and past winners. Replicas of the four trophies are on display.

Located in the Masters section, guests can see the 6-iron Phil Mickelson used in the 2010 Masters to hit a seemingly impossible shot from the pine straw on hole number 13 and the cigarette box presented to Craig Wood following his 1941 Masters victory with an engraving acknowledging his agonizing runner-up finish at the 1935 Masters to Gene Sarazen and the “shot heard ’round the world.”

Guests can also see Ken Venturi’s replica Waterford crystal he received after his heroic 1964 U.S. Open or the Challenge Belt, which was first bestowed at the inaugural 1860 British Open Championship prior to today’s Claret Jug.

Also featured are artifacts from Arnold Palmer, Greg Norman, Johnny Miller and Sam Snead.
