Colin Montgomerie has been elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame by the slimmest of margins. Montgomerie and Ken Schofield, head of the European Tour for nearly 30 years, were announced Tuesday as the latest inductees. They fill out the 2013 class that includes Willie Park Jr., Fred Couples and Ken Venturi. Montgomerie won the European Tour money list a record eight times. He received 51 percent of the vote on the international ballot. That makes two inductees in this class - Couples was the other - who got in through a special provision. If no one gets the minimum 65 percent, the player with the most votes gets elected as long as it's more than 50 percent. The induction ceremony will be May 6 in St. Augustine, Fla.

Was Monty the right pick for Hall?

I have mixed feelings about the next induction for the World Golf Hall of Fame. As a proud Scot, I should be jumping for joy at the thought of two of my compatriots, Ken Schofield and Colin Montgomerie, in the Hall, but something is nagging at me. I have reservations about Montgomerie's induction. I have no problems with Schofield. The European Tour would not be where it is...
