Should Monty Be In The World Golf Hall Of Fame?

There is a lot of debate at the moment regarding whether Colin Montgomerie should be inducted into the World Golf Hall Of Fame and the decision has been heavily criticised by Tony Jacklin and Ray Floyd who take the stance that a player should have won at least two majors to be considered.

Montgomerie known as probably the best player never to win a major has had an illustrious  career winning eight European Tour order of merits  which includes seven in a row, and has one of the best Ryder Cup records in history. 

Does this mean that if Ben Curtis wins another major in his career that he will be seen as achieved more in golf than Montgomerie? I don’t think so. I agree that to be seen as a truly great player in world golf you have to have won major champions, but if the list includes players such as Sandy Lyle and Vijay Singh (who I know have won majors ) then it has to include a player like Monty in  my opinion.

He has achieved a lot more than some players on that list even without a major to his name and was the most consistent golfer on tour for around 10 years.
