Grace & Grit Exhibit
The World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum officially unveiled its newest exhibition, “Grace & Grit: Women Champions Through the Years.” Located in the Museum’s Shell Hall opposite the Hall of Fame Member bronzes, the exhibit features golf’s greatest female champions spanning eight decades – from the 1940s to today.
As part of the exhibition’s opening, 1975 World Golf Hall of Fame Inductee Kathy Whitworth cut the ceremonial ribbon and addressed more than 100 attendees during a question and answer session.
As 88-time LPGA Tour winner, Whitworth and several of her artifacts, including her Titleholders Championship green jacket (presented to the winner of this Major played at Augusta Country Club) are featured prominently in the exhibit.
“Words can’t express how exciting it is to see my name alongside some of the game’s best like Babe Zaharias, Mickey Wright, Patty Berg and Annika Sorenstam,” said Whitworth. “So many great memories surface when I walk through this exhibit and I am humbled to be part of its opening.”
“Grace & Grit: Women Champions Through the Years” highlights the careers and achievements of 28 Hall of Fame Members and present-day Major Champions including the 2016 Rolex ANNIKA Major Award winner and current World No.1 player Lydia Ko, Stacy Lewis, Inbee Park and Lorena Ochoa.
Among the surplus of player memorabilia, the exhibit features unique artifacts including Ko’s wedges used in the final round of the 2016 ANA Inspiration. Other exhibit highlights include the personal expense report of Marilynn Smith, where she detailed all meals, lodging, and equipment costs from hundreds of golf tournaments. Also on display is Dame Laura Davies’ full-size U.S. Women’s Open trophy from 1987 when she captured the first of her four Major titles in an 18-hole Tuesday playoff, beating out fellow Hall of Fame Members Ayako Okamoto and JoAnne Carner.
The “Grace & Grit: Women Champions Through the Years” exhibition is open to the public in the World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum. For more information, visit www.worldgolfhalloffame.org.

Celebrating their Golden (50th) Anniversary together, the iconic and profoundly influential Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, often cited as a catalyst for an entire movement in Country Rock and American Roots Music, continues to add to their legendary status.
With multi-platinum and gold records, strings of top ten hits such as “Fishin’ In the Dark” and “Mr. Bojangles”, multiple GRAMMY, IBMA, CMA Awards and nominations, the band’s accolades continue to accumulate.
Their groundbreaking Will The Circle Be Unbroken album has been inducted into the U.S. Library of Congress as well as the GRAMMY Hall of Fame. Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s recording of “Mr. Bojangles” was also inducted into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame in 2010. In 2014, “Fishin’ In the Dark” was certified platinum for digital downloads by the RIAA.
Today, NGDB (Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, Bob Carpenter, John McEuen) continue their non-stop touring in their 50th year together. Recent tour stops included Stagecoach, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival and many more. The plans for their 50th Anniversary will be extensive!
