Kel Nagle Cup
The Kel Nagle Cup is named in honour of one of Australia’s greatest golfers and is presented to the winner of the NSW Open Golf Championship.
In 2015, Golf NSW recognised Nagle’s significant contribution to the game by naming the NSW Open Championship trophy the ‘Kel Nagle Cup’ in honour of the great Australian golfing icon.
Nagle, one of Australian golf’s finest ambassadors is best remembered for his triumph in the 1960 British Open Championship at St Andrews Links (the home of golf) – where he defeated the great American, Arnold Palmer.
Known throughout his career as The Pymble Crusher, Nagle recorded 81 wins globally including 61 on the PGA Tour of Australasia, a record that stands to this day and that could have been higher, except for the interruption of World War II.
Nagle was inducted into the Sports Australia Hall of Fame in 1986 and awarded the Australian Sports Medal in 2001. After some intense lobbying, Kel was finally elected into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2007.
Kel lived in Sydney all of his life and was a proud New South Welshman to his core. He was regarded as a humble man who was always ready to help his friends.
Sadly, Nagle passed away in January 2015 at the age of 94.
