The World Golf Hall of Fame clearly serves a purpose beyond that, though, doesn't it? How else do you justify the inclusion of, (and in recent years, too) :
Bush 41 (US President)
Eisenhower (US President, 5 star US General in WWII, and 18 handicapper)
Peter Alliss (know first and foremost as a British broadcaster - from what I can see his career as a professional golfer was limited to European wins and he never won a Major - so the same criticisms that apply to Montgomerie can presumably be applied to Alliss, if tournament victories are the sole criterion for a place in the Hall of Fame)?
I'm not questioning the right of any of these three people to be in the World Golf Hall of Fame. But clearly the qualities for being inducted go beyond simply being, "a great golfer" (in the literal sense of that term)?
