Today at Deacon’s Lodge we posthumously awarded Otis Dypwick’s admittance into the Minnesota Golf Hall of Fame. The award was presented to Otis’ son Doug and grandson Andy.

Otis was selected to the Hall of Fame for numerous reasons, including his 30 years at the University of Minnesota as the Director of Sports Information and his coverage of golf while there, writing several books about the game, and promoting various tournaments as they passed through Minnesota, like the 1959 PGA Championship and 1970 U.S. Open.

Mr. Dypwick was a member at Hazeltine when I started there. He was a class individual and a wealth of information.

Congrats, Doug, on your father’s admittance into the MN Golf Hall of Fame. Best to you and Vicki
