Coe, Morgan, Holder, Maxwell, Dickson and Spiller to be honored
Six legendary figures in Oklahoma golf will comprise the first class in the newly formed Oklahoma Golf Hall of Fame.
Included are one of senior golf’s most successful competitors in Gil Morgan, all-time top amateurs in Charlie Coe, most decorated golf coaches in Mike Holder, a man with a brilliant career as an amateur, professional and golf administrator in Bob Dickson and one of the world’s most revered golf architects in Perry "Duke" Maxwell.
The sixth member of the inaugural class is not a household name but should be, according to golf historians who know his true impact as a civil rights pioneer. Bill Spiller of Tishomingo, through his courage, tenacity and deep sense of justice, did more than any other man to end the Caucasian only status on the PGA Tour.
