Former U.S. Open and British Open champion Johnny Miller has become the first player elected to the PGA Tour Hall of Fame.
The new Hall of Fame in Florida has absorbed the World Golf Hall of Fame that was located in Pinehurst, N.C., and grandfathered in its members. That means players such as Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer weren't on the ballot in the first-ever Hall of Fame voting.
The 49-year-old Miller, who won 24 PGA titles, was the only player named on the required 75 percent of the ballots, the PGA Tour announced.
Former U.S. Open champion Lloyd Mangrum was second in the voting but fell short, turning up on 63 percent of the ballots. He was followed by Tom Kite (54), Ben Crenshaw (44) and Greg Norman (42).
