Luke Donald won the PGA tour money list and the European tour money list, both in the same year. If he doesn't win a major is this historic feat worthy of the golf hall of fame?
Absolutely - no one has ever done this - I believe he will win a major though, he's too good not too - but even if he doesn't, this achievement is pretty amazing!
The achievement in itself is monumental, but as it has been reported many times in the press, Tiger Woods would have done it had he played the required number of tournaments on the European Tour whilst on his momentous runs in the early 2000's.
However, Luke Donald deserves to be mentioned in the conversation of the Hall of Fame for winning both tours in a single season. As soon as he gets his first major, the talk will be settled because he'll be in. Donald has plenty of time and he is ridiculously talented. Watching him hit approaches into greens is disheartening as they always end up within 20 feet of the pin...
Does he deserve to be in the Hall of Fame at the minute? I'd say "No" because one magnificent year shouldn't be enough to justify that honor. He's well on his way though.

Does Don Mattingly deserve to be in the Hall of Fame?Now I know he does not have the numbers, but I'm not a stats guy. I go by what I saw and he was a great Yankee. Yes, it matters if you play in New York. The pressure is that much greater. A .300 average in NY is like a .325 average in Kansas...

Does Mark McGwire deserve to be in the Hall of Fame?My opinion is absolutely not. He clearly benefitted from juicing and his performance in front of Congress was disgraceful. I would vote in Bonds and Clemens, but no one else from that era.

He was caught gambling. He has been permanently banned from baseball including the Hall of Fame. Is this a fair punishment? Are there other players who have committed worse crimes who are not banned from the game or the Hall of Fame? Should they be banned?
