Bob May


Bob May is a longtime resident of Las Vegas and the champion of the 1999 British Masters. He also finished as the runner-up to Tiger Woods at the 2000 PGA Championship when he lost in a playoff. He continues to play as a professional but also operates the Bob May Golf Academy headquartered at SilverStone Golf Club. He played collegiate golf at Oklahoma State University following a historic junior career in Southern California where he is known as one of the best junior players in the history of the state. Fellow 2013 inductee Ray Norvell made a donation to May when he was a young tour player competing on golf’s mini tours and internationally.

In May’s words: “This honor means a lot to me because Las Vegas is my home, and it is extra special because Ray is going in with me in the same class. Ray is like a second father to me. I am also honored because I love this game, and it’s the only true gentleman’s game out there. I feel privileged to be a part of this game of honor.”
