The Kansas Golf Foundation inducted former Oral Roberts University golfer Bryan Norton into the Kansas Golf Hall of Fame Wednesday night at Mission Hills Country Club.
Norton was surrounded by family, friends, co-workers, and fellow golfers in a well-deserved acknowledgment of his achievements as an Amateur Player.
A few of the many highlights for the Salina, Kan.-born Norton include qualifying for 27 USGA National Championships, being a three-time Kansas Amateur Champion and a three-time Kansas Senior Amateur Champion. Norton also played briefly on the European Tour, PGA Tour, and Ben Hogan Tour.
During his time at ORU, Norton teamed with Bill Glasson, Jim Kane and Joey Rassett on teams under coach Bill Brogden that were extremely competitive nationally, including finishing second to Brigham Young by two shots at Stanford in 1981. Norton becomes the 47th inductee into the Kansas Golf Hall of Fame.
