JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Golf journalist Dan Jenkins has been selected for the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Jenkins has been writing about golf for 60 years, covering his first major at the 1951 U.S. Open that Ben Hogan won at Oakland Hills. Jenkins has written from 210 major championships. He has worked at the Fort Worth Press, Sports Illustrated and most recently Golf Digest.

He was selected through the Lifetime Achievement category. Jenkins will be the sixth media member inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame, and the first one still living when he was honored. The induction ceremony will be in May at the World Golf Village.

Jenkins will be inducted with Phil Mickelson, Hollis Stacy and two others who are to be announced on Thursday.
