Venturi selected for World Golf Hall of Fame

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Former U.S. Open champion and longtime television analyst Ken Venturi has been selected for the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Venturi, 81, was chosen through the Lifetime Achievement category.

Venturi overcame severe dehydration on the final day to win the 1964 U.S. Open at Congressional, one of his 14 wins on the PGA Tour. He also was the only amateur with the 54-hole lead in the Masters, though he shot 80 in the last round to finish one shot behind in 1956. He made even greater contributions in the broadcast booth, where he became a respected voice for 35 years with CBS Sports.

He also was the winning captain at the Presidents Cup in 2000.

Venturi will be inducted May 6 at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Fla.
