Five to be inducted into Hall of Fame Class of 2021

Regardless of what you did to get there, being named to a Hall of Fame is a special day in someone’s life. And for the eighth time in the storied history of the West Penn Golf Association, it will be so again, this time for five honorees.

The Association’s Class of 2021 (there was no Class of 2020) will be inducted Nov. 4 at Allegheny Country Club and will include Jim Masserio, Bob Reilly, Jodi Renner, Ron Sirak, and Chuck Scally Sr.

Jeff Rivard, an English and sometimes math teacher early in his adult professional life, found his way to golf, which led him to becoming the Executive Director of the Western Pennsylvania Golf Association for 23 years.

The history of golf in Western Pennsylvania is unparalleld as you might expect with Arnold Palmer being the brightest shining star in a galaxy of great players from this area.

In 2013, a Hall of Fame was created to recognize golfers and contributors from the area who had an impact on the sport’s history here. The first class consisted of Palmer, William C. Fownes, Jr., Jock Hutchison, Carol Semple Thompson, and Lew Worsham.
