When Se Ri Pak's final putt on the 18th hole dropped and signaled the completion of her first round at the 2007 McDonald's LPGA Championship Presented by Coca-Cola, Pak officially qualified for entrance into the LPGA Tour and World Golf Halls of Fame, one of the most difficult in all of sports in which to gain entry. Pak was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame at the annual induction ceremony tonight at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Fla..
“This is the best moment of my life and I'm happy to be an LPGA member joining the Hall of Fame. This is my biggest dream and basically dreams do come true,” said Pak after qualifying for the LPGA Tour and World Golf Halls of Fame. “This is one of the things that I've dreamed about and finally I've made it.”
The induction marks the end of more than a three-year wait for Pak, as she earned the requisite 27 points needed to qualify for membership into the Halls with her win at the 2004 Michelob ULTRA Open at Kingsmill. However, Pak had to wait to complete the final requirement–completing 10 seasons as an active member of the LPGA Tour.
