LONDON -- Colin Montgomerie has been elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame by the slimmest of margins.

Montgomerie and Ken Schofield, head of the European Tour for nearly 30 years, were announced Tuesday as the latest inductees. They fill out the 2013 class that includes Willie Park Jr., Fred Couples and Ken Venturi.

Montgomerie won the European Tour money list a record eight times. He received 51 per cent of the vote on the international ballot. That makes two inductees in this class -- Couples was the other -- who got in through a special provision. If no one gets the minimum 65 per cent, the player with the most votes gets elected as long as it's more than 50 per cent.

The induction ceremony will be May 6 in St. Augustine, Fla.
