Amateurs Mack Moore and Petey King and PGA professionals Dan Snider and Tim Zimmerebner will be inducted into the Arkansas Golf Hall of Fame on Oct. 25.
Beginning with the state champion Arkadelphia High School golf team, Moore has been winning golf titles for almost 50 years. He played on the University of Arkansas golf team in 1958-59 and was a member of the American Seniors Team, competing in Europe against France, Germany, Belgium, Iceland, Spain, Portugal and the United Kingdom in both individual and four-ball matches.
"I went undefeated for two consecutive years," Moore said. "I was proud to represent my country and still feel the accomplishment with a victory for the stars and stripes." For many years, Moore was Arkansas captain of the U.S. Senior Challenge team.
King won five state championships in seven attempts, including the 1985, 1987 and 1988 match play titles. In four years of match play, he was 18-1. He also won the state stroke play in 1986 and 1988. During King’s run, the only other state titles were won by John Daly — the match Play in 1986 and the stroke play in 1987.
A Class PGA member for 34 years, Snider moved from Houston to Little Rock in 1990 to become head golf professional at Chenal Country Club and in 2002 moved farther west as COO of The Alotian Club. Snider has been the Arkansas PGA Chapter Teacher of the Year 14 times and his volunteer efforts were acknowledged with a classroom named in his honor at The First Tee of Central Arkansas. One of his former students was Bryce Molder.
Zimmerebner, who died in January 2011 at the age of 51, won five consecutive PGA Chapter Player of the year Awards beginning in 2004. He was second in 2009 and won again in 2010.
