Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- A pretty special honor for one of the mainstays in local golf; the Minnesota Golf Association announced yesterday that Moorhead Country Club head pro Larry Murphy will be inducted into the Minnesota Golf Hall of Fame this September.

Murphy has been the head pro at MCC for 44 years; responsible for launching the F-M Junior Tour and won the Professional of the Year four times and says he was speechless when he got the call.

Larry Murphy- 2013 Minnesota Golf Hall Of Fame Inductee: "At first I didn't say anything for the first 30 seconds; I was stunned overwhelmed humbled all of those things go thru your mind this is totally unexpected you don't expect anything like this a wonderful thing so happy for, this isn't for Larry Murphy this is about all the people i've worked well at Moorhead Country Club I don't know if it's a payback but it's a payback for all those people too."

Murphy tells me the ceremony is slated for this fall and also the renovated back 9 at Moorhead Country Club is scheduled to open in mid-July.
