AUS­TRALIAN three-time ma­jor win­ner Jan Stephen­son and two-time US Open cham­pion Retief Goosen have been in­ducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. Stephen­son and Goosen were se­lected through the com­pe­ti­tion cat­e­gory for their stel­lar play­ing ca­reers. The bi­en­nial induction was held the week of the US Open at Pebble Beach in Cal­i­for­nia. Stephen­son was among the first to bring sex ap­peal to women’s golf. She backed up her celebrity sta­tus by win­ning 16 times on the LPGA Tour, in­clud­ing three ma­jors.
