Chip Essig is genuinely humbled by any honor that happens to come his way, the latest being no exception.

On March 12, Essig will be among eight inductees enshrined in the PGA Golf Professional Hall of Fame at a ceremony taking place at the PGA Education Center at PGA Village in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

His name, along with those of his fellow inductees, will be inscribed in granite at the adjoining PGA Museum of Golf.

“To be in the Hall of Fame, it’s a great honor. To have your name on a plaque outside the historical museum is just neat,” said Essig, 47, co-owner of Essig Golf LLC along with his father, 2009 Hall of Fame inductee Don Essig III.

“I never expect to win awards, and I don’t think that’s why you get into the golf business. It’s because of your love of the sport, and part of being a golf professional is service to the customer.”
