If I don’t get into some sort of Hall of Fame before I die, I’m going to be really disappointed in myself. Because as it turns out, there’s a Hall of Fame for everything. Mostly recently brought to my attention is the Caddie Hall of Fame. Which is only important because they’ll be inducting Bill Murray. From Golf.com(Watch out for the autoplay video. Also it’s the wrong Adam Scott):
Bill Murray and his five brothers will be inducted into The Caddie Hall of Fame at a private dinner after they compete in the BMW Championship pro-am at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest, Illinois on Wednesday.
1.) That is definitely the first time I have visited or cited Golf.com for any reason. So professional breakthroughs.
2.) I understand why Bill Murray is the Patron Saint around these parts, but his brother Brian Doyle-Murray deserves way more love than he gets.
Brian has 141 acting credits to his name, he wrote Caddyshack, and he has a long complicated history with James Lipton. Try to find some room in your heart for the elder Murray.
But today is about Bill. And so we need to address one other item in the press release:
The Caddie Hall of Fame was created in 1999 by Dennis and Laura Cone and the Professional Caddies Assocation, but the Western Golf Assocation took it over in 2011.
According to its website, inductees are either junior caddies (“prominent individuals who have used their caddie experiences as a steppingstone for future success”), caddie administrators or career caddies, though its inductees also include legendary golfers such as Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson and even Old Tom Morris.
And in that spirit, I’d like to announce the creation of my own Hall of Fame(s). Fall of 2031, I’ll be happy to announce that I’m inducting Bill Murray for his significant contribution in the field(s) of
Golf Headwear Hall of Fame
General Golf Attire Hall of Fame
Golf Facial Hair Hall of Fame
Lifetime Achievement for Golf Advocacy and Outreach
For his role in introducing golf to previously untapped populations. Specifically the undead.
In closing, please let met hang out with you, Bill Murray. I love you so, so much.
