Colin Montgomerie and Ken Schofield were elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame on Tuesday, joining Fred Couples, Willie Park Jr., and Ken Venturi to round out the 2013 class. They will be inducted May 6, 2013, at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Fla., to kick off THE PLAYERS Championship week.

Montgomerie dominated The European Tour in the 1990s, finishing No. 1 seven straight years beginning in 1993 before capturing another Harry Vardon Trophy in 2005. He won 31 European Tour titles and in eight successive Ryder Cup appearances starting in 1991 went unbeaten in singles play with a record of 6-0-2. He also captained Europe to victory at the 2010 matches at Celtic Manor Resort.

Schofield, meanwhile, became First Secretary and Executive Director of the European Tour on Jan. 1, 1975. When he took the helm, the European Tour consisted of just 17 official events. By the time he retired at the end of 2004, there were 45 official events in addition to 29 European Challenge Tour events and 21 European Senior Tour events.
