It’s amazing sometimes the things that are right underneath your nose and somehow still go unnoticed. Welcome to the USGA museum in far hills / liberty corner, only twenty minutes from the center of Clinton, and a gem of information and history.  This is certainly a destination point for the golf fan but is also a perfect school trip to enlighten the youngsters.

The HC NEWS took a trip to the museum on Tuesday and would like to extend thanks to Kim Gianetti for giving us access to the galleries so we could share them with you.  We are going to give you a six part feature starting with the hall of champions, and then dedicating different days to the dedicated rooms starting tomorrow with the king Arnold Palmer. Enjoy

The Hall of Champions is home to the USGA’s 13 original championship trophies. The names of every USGA champion since 1895 are inscribed on bronze panels that line the walls
