If your dad is a golf fan, you may want to take him down to the World Golf Hall of Fame tomorrow to celebrate Father's Day. Besides offering free admission to everyone, the museum will feature special guided tours with emphasis on the U.S. Open (taking place this weekend) and fathers in golf.

Instructors from the PGA Tour Golf Academy will hold complimentary full swing and putting clinics and guests can play the Challenge Hole and Putting Course for a nominal fee. In addition, a number of contests and prizes will be available throughout the day.

"We want residents and guests to experience the excitement that is happening at the World Golf Hall of Fame this year," said Jack Peter, chief operating officer for the World Golf Hall of Fame. "We have seen great support for the Hall of Fame during the past six years and we want the community to know how much that support is appreciated."

Father's Day at the World Golf Hall of Fame, sponsored by Wachovia Securities, will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The World Golf Hall of Fame is located between Jacksonville and St. Augustine, Exit 323 on Interstate 95. For more information, call 940-4123 or visit

Davis Love III, one of the top professional golfers in the world, will lead hundreds of bikers to visit hospitalized children in Adamec's Motorcycles and Miracles Harley Run on June 26.

The entry fee for motorcyclists to participate is $20 with a $10 charge for an additional passenger.
