560481_10150853788969335_1599569763_nOne of our favorite exhibitions at the World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum in World Golf Village is the Member Locker Room where life-size lockers are stocked with actual mementos from Hall of Famers’ lives, often telling little-known stories about their careers and personal lives.  What makes the Locker Room so compelling is the same reason the exhibits and lockers of the new 2012 Hall of Fame inductees are worth a visit: the personal mementos that provide an intriguing glimpse into the real worlds of golf’s greatest players and important contributors.
