Hall of Fame

TALLAHASSE, FL - Florida State University golf legend Hubert Green, who won 19 events while playing on the PGA Tour, has been selected for induction in the World Golf Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2007. Green was selected in the Veteran's Category by the World Golf Foundation Board of Directors Selection Committee and will be honored at the 2007 Induction Ceremony on Nov. 12, 2007 at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Fla.

Green came to Florida State in 1965 and served as the captain of the golf team in 1968. He led Florida State to a 10th place finish in the NCAA Championship tournament in 1968 and guided the Seminoles to several impressive dual-meet victories over many teams in the southeastern United States including Florida during his collegiate career. Green was inducted in the Florida State Athletics Hall of Fame in 1977 and is one of six male golfers in the FSU Hall of Fame. He graduated from Florida State and turned professional in 1969.

Green is one of the most successful professional golfers in the history of the sport. He won 19 events while playing on the PGA Tour including the U.S. Open Championship in 1977 and the PGA Championship in 1985. He played on the 1977, 1979 and 1985 U.S. Ryder Cup Teams and is currently playing on the Champions Tour. Green has earned four titles while playing on the Champions Tour with his most recent championship coming in 2002 at the Lightpath Long Island Classic.

His 2003 season on the Champions Tour was cut short after being diagnosed with a cancerous growth on his left tonsil and back of his tongue during a routine dental examination. Green opted to begin radiation and chemotherapy sessions and missed the remainder of the year while undergoing nearly six weeks of treatment for the disease at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Fla. He returned to the Champions Tour to begin the 2004 season and finished 37th at the season-opening MasterCard Championship in Hawaii.

"On my golfing journey, I had no idea how high I could climb," said Green on being told of his election to the Hall of Fame. "To be inducted in to the Hall of Fame is reaching the summit; best of all his being a member of the club that hosts the greats of the game."

Green will be inducted with Curtis Strange who was considered to be the dominant American golfer during the decade of the 1980's. He earned consecutive U.S. Open Championships in 1988 and 1989. Strange is also currently competing on the Champions Tour and has won more than $7 million during his professional career.

Green and Strange will become the 113th and 114th members of the World Golf Hall of Fame upon their inductions in November.
