PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida (Doug Ferguson/AP) — The criteria to be considered for the World Golf Hall of Fame smacks of yet another effort by the PGA Tour to make The Players Championship something it’s not.

Eligible players must have won 15 times on any of the six major tours around the world or win at least two of the following tournaments — The Masters, U.S. Open, The Open Championship, PGA Championship, and The Players Championship.

Five tournaments of equal standing.

Four of them are majors.
