I agree on the long putter. It is legal so I am not sure how you can hold it against him.I think he deserves to go in. I don't see using the long putter as a reason to hold it against him.
Adam Scott does not yet qualify under the current criteria. To qualify, a player must be 40 years old or 5 years removed from active competition. In addition, he must have at least 15 wins from any of several tours (both the PGA Tour and the Euro Tour qualify) or 2 major wins.As he leads the back 9 on Sunday, which would be his 14th PGA Tour win, it got me thinking about the hall of fame.
He currently has 13 wins on the PGA Tour
He has 11 Euro Tour wins
He also has 9-10 other International wins
He reached #1 in the world and held it for nearly 3 months.
He has 1 Major with his Masters win.
He has finished top 5 in all of the majors.
Do you think he is a hall of famer?
I agree - if he meets the WGHOF standards, then he should get in. Whether the WGHOF standards are adequate/appropriate is a different discussion.For all of the posters who state that he doesn’t deserve to get in unless he does “x,” I wonder why you are imposing your own subjective criteria, when the criteria for qualification are objective and have been pointed out in the thread. It takes 14 wins OR 2 majors. That’s it. He’ll get in. He’s done what the World Golf Hall of Fame has set as the standard. It doesn’t even seem like an argument can be made otherwise.
Plus, that swing...
