ATLANTA—The late Lloyd Mangrum, who won the 1946 U.S. Open and 35 other tournaments during a career interrupted by World War II, was elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame. Mangrum received exactly the 75% of the vote required for induction.
Greg Norman was the only other PGA Tour player who came close in the balloting, receiving 65.8% of the vote. There is no truth to the rumor that Norman had 80% of the vote going into the final ballot.

MILWAUKEE—Milwaukee Brewers infielder John Jaha's scheduled talk with students as part of his drunken-driving sentence has been vetoed by school administrators. Matthew Gibson, superintendent of the suburban Elmbrook School District, said parents and principals disliked the idea because, as one man wrote, Jaha has "not met the test of time to qualify as a role model for children."
Jaha pleaded guilty in July to drunken driving and was fined $783. He agreed to speak to students as part of his community-service sentence.
