Broadcaster and former World Cup winner Jim Nelford is one of three inductees to the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame.
Nelford, a native of Burnaby, won back-to-back Canadian Amateur Championships in 1975 and 1976 and teamed with Dan Halldorson to win the 1980 World Cup. His PGA playing career was marred by a major injury but he went on to become a golf broadcaster with the Golf Channel, CBS, ESPN, NBC, TSN and CTV.
Also entering in the player category is amateur Alison Murdoch, a four-time winner of the Canadian Senior Championship. She also won back-to-back super senior's championships, plus the British and Irish senior titles.
Jack McLaughlin enters the Hall posthumously in the builder category. McLaughlin was president of both the Ontario and British Columbia PGA boards, as well as director of the PGA of Canada. He was also the head pro at Vancouver's Shaughnessy Golf Club prior to his death in 1991.
