Nagle was selected in the Veteran s Category, determined by the World Golf Foundation Board of Directors Selection Committee. “I am very pleased to be recognised and look forward to joining some of my old friends in the Hall of Fame, including Peter Thomson, Greg Norman, Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson all with whom I&aposve played golf during my career,” said Nagle.

Together with fellow Hall of Fame member Thomson, he won the 1954 and 1959 World Cups. “Carr and Nagle are welcome additions to the Class of 2007, rounding out a range of individuals who have contributed to the sport and its history greatly,” said Jack Peter, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the World Golf Hall of Fame. “We look forward to honouring our first Irishman and yet another Aussie, both of whom hold terrific stories that will be told properly throughout the Hall of Fame for years to come.”
