In addition, Terry Gannon, veteran sportscaster for NBC Sports and Golf Channel, will emcee the ceremony.

“We are honored to have several of golf’s biggest icons and a Golden Globe winning actress help us recognize the Class of 2019 with golf’s highest honor,” said Greg McLaughlin, CEO of the World Golf Foundation. “We are also thrilled to have one of sports’ most versatile broadcasters, NBC’s Terry Gannon, as the emcee for the Ceremony, which will be held on the eve of the 119th U.S. Open at the famed Pebble Beach Golf Links. With a hundred years of golf history, Pebble Beach is the perfect location to enshrine five new members into the ranks of the World Golf Hall of Fame.”

Gannon has been a fixture on the Golf Channel since joining the network in 2010, and currently serves as a play-by-play host for PGA TOUR and LPGA Tour tournaments as well as the Ryder Cup. Gannon has also contributed to coverage of the Olympic Games, NBA, NCAA and the World Cup.
