Australian three-time major winner Jan Stephenson and two-time US Open champion Retief Goosen have been inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
Stephenson and Goosen were selected were selected through the competition category for their playing careers.
The biennial induction was held the week of the US Open at Pebble Beach in an effort to attract Hall of Fame members, and 28 of the 160 members attended.
Stephenson was among the first to bring sex appeal to women's golf, part of that the design of former LPGA Tour commissioner Ray Volpe.
The 67-year-old's most famous moment outside the ropes was posing in a bathtub, her body covered only by golf balls.
"They were tumultuous and exciting times that launched my career in a slightly different direction," Stephenson said.
She backed up her celebrity by winning 16 times on the LPGA Tour, including three majors.

Stephenson was part of what she described as "the most competitive and colourful era" for the LPGA Tour, and several others from her generation – from Beth Daniel to Meg Mallon, from Juli Inkster to Pat Bradley – are in the Hall of Fame and watched from the audience.
Goosen, 50, grew up in Polokwane, a town so small that it still has only one golf course with grass when it rains, sand when it doesn't.
Four days short of his 16th birthday, he waited out a rainstorm and headed back out on the course before he was struck by lightning.
"The lightning sparked something in me," Goosen said with a wry smile.
His friend was walking 20 yards ahead and was knocked to the ground by the lightning.
"He said he turned around there I was, smoking, no clothes, burned black from head to tail, blood," Goosen said.
"He ran to the next hole and there was a group of four guys. To my luck, one was a doctor. He was there in a few minutes and brought me back to life.
"It was a lucky escape ... Three weeks later, I was back on the golf course.
"And here we are today."
Goosen was a runner-up at the Masters twice and has 36 wins to his credit, seven of them on the PGA Tour.
