(AP) Ernie Els has been elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame in the first year he was on the ballot.

Els, a three-time major champion from South Africa with 62 victories around the world, received 66 percent of the vote from a panel of journalists, golf officials and Hall of Fame members.

Doug Ford, whose 19 wins on the PGA Tour include the Masters and PGA Championship, and two-time major winner Jock Hutchison from Scotland were elected through the Veteran’s Category.

The Hall of Fame also will have a former U.S. president enshrined for the second straight time. Former president George H.W. Bush was selected in the Lifetime Achievement category.
